Gravity Gets You High?

This News Footage shows what happens when one reporter and a bunch of science teachers get a free ride in NASA's zero-gravity simulating jet. Apparently everyone has fun, and nobody pukes.

It looks like lots of fun. I think it would've had more of an effect on students, if a school had won a trip and the students had gotten to experience it. But I guess there may be some health concerns with school kids at high/low Gs, and this also gets a broader exposure by allowing several schools to be "touched" by the experience. Also I think in a low-key educational environment such as the United States where education is trivialised and downgraded constantly, it is a very good thing to encourage the teachers, as well.
