Mayor Gavin Newsom: "I think this zero-gravity thing will
help us climb even higher up the social ladder than our showmance."
Jennifer Siebel: "This was so worth the $7,000, Gavvy. And
you're so right, this angle isn't unflattering at all."
Sergey Brin: "Good thing y'all are carrying an alien baby."
MOFFETT FIELD, CAZero Gravity Corporation, the first and
only FAA-approved provider of commercial weightless flights, welcomed
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and fiancé Jennifer Siebel
to experience a weightless adventure aboard one of the first zero-gravity
flights for the general public from NASAs Moffett Federal
During the unforgettable weightless escapade, Newsom and Siebel
flew like Superman, flipped like Olympic gymnasts and enjoyed
10-times more hang-time than the worlds best basketball
player. The newly engaged duo floated on cloud nine as they danced
mid-air in the rare and exalted state of weightlessness.
The February 16 experience offered by ZERO-G is the only commercial
opportunity on Earth for individuals to enjoy true weightlessness
without going to space. This is the identical weightless flight
experience used by NASA to train its astronauts and by Ron Howard
and Tom Hanks to film Apollo-13. ZERO-G offers regular flights
for the general public from Las Vegas, Florida and now Moffett
Field. The next public zero-gravity flight from Moffett Field
will take place July 12, 2008.
Professor Stephen Hawking, Martha Stewart, Joey Fatone, Billy
Bush, Burt Rutan, Miles OBrien, Princess Beatrice of York
and cast members of The Apprentice, and The
Biggest Loser are just a few notable passengers whove
flown with ZERO-G. Numerous astronauts including Buzz Aldrin and
Anousheh Ansari also have enjoyed ZERO-G voyages.
