You Too Can Ride the Vomit Comet

Zero Gravity Corporation (ZERO-G) is "offering commercial, Weightless Flights aboard a specially modified Boeing 727-200 aircraft. ZERO-G is the only company approved by the FAA to conduct Weightless Flights for the public... The ZERO-G Experience, which includes training led by a professional astronaut, a flight of 20 parabolas, complimentary merchandise, awards, a post-event party, photos, and a DVD of the flight, is offered at a price of $2,950 per seat."

I wonder if the "complimentary merchandise" includes barf bags. There's something a little strange about offering a tourism experience that, from all reports, most astronauts considered an ordeal. (via boingboing)
