Zero G and I feel fine
What’s it like to feel weightless, like the astronauts on the International Space Station?
Brian Bartelo is a 6th grader from Buffalo, New York. He entered an essay contest to win a trip on a ZeroG flight — an airplane that simulates weightlessness by flying parabolic arcs.
The contest was sponsored by SpaceKids Global, an outreach organization aimed at bringing kids closer to space exploration. We’ll hear from Brian and his brother about the flight, plus a conversation with SpaceKids Global founders Sharon & Mark Hagle about the inspiration of ZeroG flights.

Then it’s not all about goofing around. Scientists leverage platforms like these flights to conduct experiments. One of those scientists is University of Central Florida’s Addie Dove. She joins us to talk about research in microgravity.
