What it’s really like to go on a zero-gravity flight like Jeff Bezos

Floating in zero gravity 32,000 feet above Newark Airport is something that a person who’s deathly afraid of heights and prone to motion sickness probably shouldn’t do. And yet, I did it. “I am not the daredevil girl,” I joked with Zero-G pilot Erich Domitrovits, feeling a combination of fear and excitement. “I’m the ‘taking … Read more

a dip in gravity

DUNOD The book. Of course, the school holidays are over and, with them, the possible sunbathing on the sand. But that’s no reason not to read this last volume of Dunod’s popularization series, Newton at the beach. If only because, for the same price, you will also have Maxwell and Einstein in your hands!

Plans for a future age: Project launches ‘Yale-o-nauts’ into zero gravity

On a recent flight, Yale student Paul Meuser turned his head to the side and saw his fellow passengers floating about the cabin. “That image will stay with me,” he said. Nothing was amiss. Meuser and two Yale School of Architecture classmates were aboard a zero-gravity parabolic research flight, which emulates gravity-free conditions in an aircraft, testing … Read more
