Zero sense.

The ever enterprising Russians appear to be selling zero gravity flights to all comers, as part of their new commercial focus. All done at a ‘Top Secret Space Training Facility outside Moscow’, eh? �3699.00 ($5881.41) gets you a three day trip and several minutes of weightlessness aboard an IL-76MDK airplane.

Cheapskates can take advantage of The Ferret’s budget alternative. For a mere handful of greens we will arrange a nice fall from a 3rd story apartment onto some strategically placed Slumberland mattresses. The flight may be shorter, but the experience can be repeated at will over the course of a 7 day excursion to a ‘Top Secret Balcony Window in South East London’.

‘There you will experience a flight in the huge IL-76MDK airplane, which will render you weightless for several minutes. It does this by flying in a parabolic / rollercoaster type curve, and as it nears its apogee (there was no need for that word, but it’s just so, so. odd), you will lift into the air and bob about just as if you were in space!’
