Stephen Hawking Takes a Zero-Gravity Flight

ZERO-G(TM) and its sponsors, Space Florida and The Sharper Image, flew world-renowned physicist and cosmologist Professor Stephen Hawking into weightlessness today, performing eight parabolas, out of the Shuttle Landing Facility at the Kennedy Space Center in Central Florida.
It was the first time Professor Hawking, the world's leading expert on gravity, had a zero-gravity experience.

After the flight Stephen Hawking had to say the following:
"The zero-g (0g) part was wonderful and the high-g part was no problem. I could had gone on and on. Space here I come!"
