    [pedantism]You wouldn't really be able to look down on the Earth, as the rides take place on windowless Boeing 727 cargo planes at an altitude 4,000 feet lower than your average commercial flight.[/pedantism]

    Either way it sounds like a really cool experience, I've always wanted to take a ride on one of those zero-g flights.

    I should bid for Kevin Bacon to join him:

    1. He's done zero-g before;

    2. Then I can be connected to Prof. Hawking in Six Degrees or less.

    Yeah, but does he fall short of McGregor's standard?

    I don't want to have to watch a Kevin Bacon movie unless I have to.

    I wouldn't even care about the ride in the air craft. Meeting Stephen Hawking would be AWESOME.

    Because Autovolt came from outer space himself, and he considers such primitive excursions into "simply" the atmosphere to be comparatively wasteful, unexciting and pointless. Back to Mars with you, Autovolt!

    I wonder how they are going to do this with him, I mean are they just gonna let the wheelchair float free when in zero g fall, or are they going to let him out of the chair? Cause if they let him out of the chair it would be hard to have someone in position to catch him when gravity returns, and if they let the wheelchair float free he wouldn't really be able to control where it goes and it could hit someone. And no, I'm not being a smart ass, I am actually curious.
