You gave up on your dream of being an astronaut, but you can still have an out-of-this-world experience aboard Zero-G's gravity-defying flight. On May 8th, guests will board the G-Force One, a modified Boeing 727, at
Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and be taken to a blocked airspace to fly between altitudes of 24,000 feet to 32,000 feet in parabolic movements (like a rollarcoaster). Every time the plane loses altitude it creates zero gravity and the passengers can float like Superman.  Flights last approximately two hours and deliver 15 separate weightless experiences, each lasting about 30 seconds.

This is the identical weightless flight experience used by NASA to train its astronauts and used by Ron Howard and Tom Hanks to film Apollo-13.  Celebrities like Nicole Kidman and hubby Keith Urban have enjoyed the flight as well as 6,000 others, so no need to feel like you are Zero-G's guinea pig.  

The experience will costs $4,950 per seat plus tax. It may sound steep, but unless you are a crazy billionaire (or an actual astronaut) this is as close to outer space as you are going to get. To reserve a seat, email info@zerog.com, call (888) 664-7284 or visit www.gozerog.com
