You are right. I looked it up immediately. I was so surprised this existed! It’s like a bunch of weightless parabolic flights for the price of maybe a first class ticket. You go up one time but you do over a dozen because obviously you can only fall so far before aircraft speed builds up too much.

I had heard the cast of the film apollo 13 talk about the weightless scenes being filmed in this way. It was a first. But didn’t know anyone could do this.

Why go to orbit - identical to weightlessness on the ISS etc.

Great photos!

edit: whaaat?: this company was founded 2 years before Apollo 13 was released (though they used NASA planes)
