Ever wanted to be an astronaut when you grew up? Well now you kinda can.
J Barter Travel in Cork have launched the S3 ZeroG Experience, which allows you to feel like a spacestar and have a weightless anti-gravity experience during a for a a 90-minute flight where you'll float around like Neil Armstrong on the Apollo.
Here's how it works:
In the absence of gravitational pull, which is the natural force of attraction exerted on us by the Earth, the body feels completely free of any sensation of weight.
This state of weightlessness is known as zero gravity. It can be achieved by going into space, or through the somewhat easier option of enjoying an S3 ZeroG Experience.
Our modified plane gives everyone the chance to freely float like an astronaut and live out the ultimate experience of zero gravity. 15 parabolas, each providing between 20 and 25 seconds of weightlessness, are performed in the course of a 90 minutes flight.
Very, very cool.
There's 50 flights running in 15 different countries, but be warned: This will cost you the guts of a good 7k. Yikes.
But sure, living out your 11-year-old dream is priceless right?
