VOMIT-COMET PAGE

A few images from late summer 1998 micro-gravity material testing flights.   I experienced 150 parabolas over three days.  At approximately 20 secs of zero G with each parabola that is a total of around 50 minutes in micro-gravity.  Thanks NASA.

Me with NASA's KC-135A aircraft.  I learned why they call it the Vomit Comet.

 

The aircraft's flight profile.

 

The experiment (injection of epoxy adhesive in micro-gravity environment).

Testing a hand tool.

 

Testing the effects of zero-g.

  More testing of the effects of zero-g.
