Wanna experience Zero Gravity ?

Your childhood dream to fly like superman can be achieved now. G-FORCE ONE® is the aircraft to make your dream come true. You can experience Zero Gravity without going to space only here. Book a seat in any of the regular flights conveniently based in Las Vegas, Nevada and at the Kennedy Space Center, near Orlando, Florida. Zero Gravity Corporation (ZERO-G) is a privately held space entertainment and tourism company.


Weightless Flight (also known as Parabolic Flight) is achieved aboard ZERO-G's Boeing 727 aircraft named G-FORCE ONE. Weightlessness is achieved by flying G-FORCE ONE through a parabolic flight maneuver. Specially trained pilots fly these maneuvers between approximately 24,000 and 34,000 feet altitude.The maneuver is somewhat like a roller coaster in that the plane is initially pulled up to approximately 45 degrees 'nose high'. Next the plane is 'pushed over' the top to reach the zero-gravity segment of the parabolas. For the next 25 - 30 seconds everything in the plane is weightless. At approximately 30 degrees 'nose low' a gentle pull-out is started which allows the Flyers to stabilize on the aircraft floor. Finally, the g-force is increased smoothly to about 1.8 g's until the aircraft reaches a flight altitude of 24,000 feet. The maneuver is then repeated.

Cost ?

The ZERO-G Experience, which includes training led by a professional astronaut, a flight of 15 parabolas, flight suit, complimentary merchandise, awards, a post-event party, photos, and a DVD of the flight, is offered at a price of $3,950 per seat. They provide photos of everyone taken by a professional.

Interested ?

Heaven On Earth

I'm sure everyone would have a dream place in their heart. A place were they wish to go or see atleast once in their life time. Below are some of the pics which have made me feel that the places are very special to me and close to my heart. May be some places are imaginary. But still i wish some day heaven would invade earth and i will go and see these places :-)
