She should at least bring a featherweight with her also.

That is really neat, but I can't imagine sewing in zero gravity.

That's amazing. I'm curious to see what she makes! Sewing in outer space seems awesome, even though I'd be terrified of losing pins and having them float around... Is anyone else here really curious about how it fels to be weightless?

For only $5000 you can find out what it feels like.

Zero-gravity adventure

When my dog, a lab mix, was younger and full of energy, he had this habit of running full speed towards me and almost running into me. Well, one time he did this and I moved in the wrong direction and he plowed right into me. It knocked my legs right out from under me and for a brief second, I felt like I was floating in mid air. I'm guessing that's what weightlessness feels like.

I guess I'll have to get into a crashing elevator in a skyscraper, since I don't have $5000

My stepbrother is a physicist and he once talked about getting us on one of those weightless flights, I definitely wanted to take the challenge because he says almost everyone pukes at the sensation of weightlessness, and I'm known to be completely immune to every kind of motion sickness.
