In what is know as a huge mile stone, Stephen is going on a plane ride to experience zero gravity. Heres a link.

His goal is to fly in space by 2009. This is just awesome, this man deserves it one million percent. Thank you Zero Gravity Corp!

I would love to experience 0g... it would certainly be a thrill.

Skydiving isn't quite the same, the wind rushing past you, and the sight of the ground creeping up brings you back to the reality that you are falling.

If you freefall in a plane, you get the sensation of 0 gravity, no wind, and no sight of the ground rushing up at you to snap you back to reality.

What a thrill that must be.

More power to him.

If an elderly quadriplegic can accomplish this it just shows that anyone can do it.
I have the deepest respect for this man, and hope he gets to see his dream come true.

Great Post! This one made me smile
I am glad to hear that Branson is trying to get him into space as well. He deserves it!

ogog Steve.I'd like to see him get up there to hear his reaction.

Has anyone considered if he will be able to survive the stresses of liftoff when he takes his space flight? I'm sure going into space would be cool and all, but how strong medically is he? I think that his trip would be rather high risk and I am surprised that any space agency would seriousally consider sending him up.

Simtek he won't be going to space. As far as I understand, 0g is simulated by a plane flying to a high altitude and the diving towards the ground. It isn't true 0g, but you get the same effects.
