Hell yeah, Volcom. They`re building the Virgin Galactic Spaceport down in my neck of the woods.

Finally, some tax money spent on something that may actually benefit mankind. Boggles the mind.

Civilians can participate in this experience for $3,750. If you`ve got the cash you should try it. Here is an article a guy wrote about his experience:

He also mentions that they want to train civilian astronauts and sell suborbital flights for $220,000. Space tourism could be the next big thing.

this is actually the first video in a 3-part "series". the second video uses a balloon w/ red food colouring, and the third, they blow air into the floating water w/ a straw

this is pretty cool. this is just proof that astronauts get bored pretty easy. NASA should like, at least give them an xbox 360 or somethin to keep them occupied up there.

Dude, that`s not in space. It`s in a special plane used to help train astronauts. They go really high up and then let the plane drop, giving the illusion of no gravity (same as the illusion of no grav when in orbit). But yah, that`s AWESOME!

this was on the science channel about a month ago.

seems it started as a free time screw-around and lead to a new understanding of how gravity pulled the planets together out of the dust cloud they say formed the solor system

They don`t actually study that they do it for fun. Scientists will often bring up stuff like water ballons and other liquids and play around with them during their spare time. An important discovery was actually made when someone was fooling around with some coke up in space.

That is really cool. And I strongly doubt it was meant to be science, seems more like just a fun thing to do to me.

No way they`d think of doing that in space. If the water got into any instruments they`d be drated.

How much money do you think they spent studying that? If you say any more than a thousand, you`re stupid.

An experiment in water baloon physics leading to the final result of ultimate cohesion of surface tension . B-|

Is "parabolic arc" the new "photoshopped"?

The plane didnt have to be in the dive for there to be microgravity. It would have worked in the whole parabolic arc that plane goes through.

NASA probably spent 10 billion dollars studying that.

I`d be trying to drink the water.

Nasty thought though... what if they whacked off in space? you`d have to Matrix-Bullet-time dodge it!

Parabolic arc

"Important note: This video was actually taken in a plane in a nose dive meant to simulate low gravity and not actually in outerspace. :-p"

Aye this is a clip from a larger video posted a few months back or so.

Ah, I knew I`d seen that before (except larger).
A site previously linked had that video, as well as several others. :-)
