Try to dance all sorts of funny line dances!

I like the idea of arranging things in zero g, like maybe dominoes or blocks or something. ooooh, alphabet blocks! spell something funny in mid air.

I spent the day yesterday learning more about the flight and I have planned out my experiments with my group. I will be velcroing myself to a scale and recording my various weights (so my students can calculate weight based on gravity). We will be playing catch with various types of balls (ping pong, koosh) and a human. We will be juggling, playing with a slinky, a yo-yo, flying through a hoop and trying to drink water...not all at the same time:)

Other groups will be doing things like building a human pyramid, doing push-up, chasing M&M's, playing with wind up toys, watching toy pigs fly and I will get a DVD with all of the video. Now I'm really excited and don't want to wait a month to do this.

See if you can bring a can of silly string (like above), but attempt to use it for propulsion.

Or just a can of air used for cleaning keyboards, so you don't get silly string all over the inside of the plane. Wink

If you don't mind looking silly, go with your hair tied back and then take out your hair band. Zero gravity does cool (and often silly) looking things to hair.

Hello all,
Yesterday was the day that I experienced zero gravity and I have to say...it was amazing. I did flips, flew like superman, got to be the ball in a game of catch, tried to catch a glob of water and tons of other awesome stuff. I will tell you all about it when I see you all since there is so much to share .

I found this video online, it aired last night on one of the Baltimore TV stations. The video was actually taken on the morning flight and I was on the afternoon flight so I am not in this video but I thought it was pretty cool anyway. http://wjz.com/video/?id=31165@wjz.dayport.com (it might play a short commercial before the clip.)

Also, the professional pictures will soon be posted at www.gozerog.com/photos -hopefully within the next 24 hours. That is all for now... I'll post more pics and video soon.

I would have replied sooner, but I was busy researching which bridge would be the best one to jump off of! Crying or Very sad

Well, I am going down to DC on Sunday to see the Giants and the Skins and if the Giants lose again I probably won't waste time doing the research...I'll jump off the first one I see.
