Vomit Comet Trip
Here are a few images from 1998 late summer micro-gravity material testing flights. I experienced 150 zero-G parabolas over three days. At approximately 20 seconds of zero-G with each one, I spent a total of around 50 minutes in micro-gravity. Thank you, NASA.
I’m in front of the NASA’s KC-135A aircraft. I learned why they call it the Vomit Comet.
