What’s it like to ride the Zero G plane?

Comments Off on What’s it like to ride the Zero G plane?

In this 22 minute video, you get to see the guys on the Norton Antivirus-sponsored flight. A lot of the camera angle is up a guy’s nose, which is unfortunate, and for the first parabola things go a bit weird, but then it picks up.

Note that this video has been viewed 17,401 times since September 2008. That’s not quite as many as the 9,123,974 views of the original Michael Jackson “Thriller” dance at a wedding, but it is some serious eyeshare.

An old coworker told me last week that he thinks the Zero G flight is a perfect metaphor for marriage: Sometimes you feel like you’re floating, and it’s wonderful, and other times you’re slammed to the ground and 1.8 times Earth’s gravity.
