More Good News

The good news just keeps rolling in. I just found out that I have been selected to participate in a microgravity flight. This is a flight that is just like how they train the astronauts. I will load up into an airplane which will fly up to 35,000 feet and then drop at a 45 degree angle. This will produce 30-45 seconds of weightlessness. We will fly 10-20 loops like this. I will post a lot more information later, when I get it. For now, here is the link to Northrop Grumman who are sponsoring the flights.

That is great! Will they let you take video during the flight? Have a great time.

Eric, thanks for posting a comment. I don't have all of the details about the microgravity flight yet but from what I understand, I will actually get a video of the flight. I talked to a teacher from Florida who went on a similar flight two years ago. Each teacher made an experiment to bring along and then got a video to take back with them. I will be flying to Colorado Springs on August 17th for a training session so I should know more then.

Thanks again!
