SUMMARY: Ever wonder what it might feel like to float weightless in space? One way to try it out is to fly on a special aircraft that astronauts use to train for their trips to space. Both NASA and the Russian Space Agency have been flying these for years, but it's been difficult for regular people to try them out. Now a private company, called Zero G, will give you the chance for just under $3,000 USD. If you're a student, and that's too rich for your blood, NASA is inviting students to test their experiments on the "Weightless Wonder" aircraft. You've got until October 20th to send in your proposal to NASA. And if you're selected, you get to invite a journalist along too. Hint, hint.

Check it out!
