Experience weightlessness, no joke!

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could go online and book a trip that will give you the experience most people only dream about, you know, being weightless? I was as shocked as you probably are right now when I found out it was entirely possible, as Sharper Image now sells a product it calls the ZERO-G Weightless Experience, which brings that dream true.

All jokes aside, this is pretty awesome.

ZERO-G is a company that is certified to give you this weightlessness experience. To do this, you take a 90 minute “G-Force One” flight which takes you through 15 different parabolic maneuvers. Although I instantly knew what that last bit meant, you might not, and I’m here for you: the flight has three stages, first you experience martian gravity (1/3 your weight), then two parabolas at Lunar gravity (1/6 your weight) and finally 12 parabolas at zero gravity, where you will truly be weightless.

The ZERO-G plane itself originates from either Kennedy Space Center, FL or Las Vegas, NV and takes off pretty much every weekend. Also, any healthy person 12+ can experience ZERO-G, so it really is mainstream.

The only disappointing part of this product is the price, while it is affordable for some, it is still wickedly expensive at $3,675 a seat. But, this is a once in a lifetime experience, and if you know a real space nut, this present would definitely mean a lot to them.
