Hyderabad: For many who watched Jeff Bezos go on a short space ride and now the all-civilian crew taking off in a Space X flight, did you for one second wish to go to space to experience anti-gravity?
Well now, there is another way to feel what it would be like to float like an astronaut in space. Yes, a company called The Zero Gravity Experience takes you on a 90-minute zero gravity trip at $7,500 (approx. Rs 5,52,000).
The company, which aims to make the excitement and adventure of space accessible to the public, allows adventurers to float, flip, somersault and hang upside down in the hollowed-out cabin of a Boeing 727.
According to ‘Reuters’, when the modified G-Force One plane gets to an altitude of about 24,000 feet (7,300m), the pilots start to climb, and then push the plane over the top of a parabolic arc – leaving passengers in free fall.
The passenger would feel weightless for 20 to 30 seconds until the plane descends back to 24,000 feet. Pilots repeat the manoeuvre about 15 times during the flight.
