and see if you can understand the explanation of how this works on Earth. Click on the video as well.

Hi Miss Florence,
In the website it said that it was a plain and that it was achieved by doing aerobatic maneuvers known as parabolas. I loved the video! I love these posts.
See you,

Hello Miss Florence,
What I think of the video is:
How it Works
Aboard our specially modified Boeing 727, G-FORCE ONE, weightlessness is achieved by doing aerobatic maneuvers known as parabolas.
ZERO-G’s passengers experience true weightlessness.
The pilots then begins to pull up, gradually increasing the angle of the aircraft to about 45° to the horizon reaching an altitude of 34,000 feet. During this pull-up, passengers will feel the pull of 1.8 Gs. Next the plane is “pushed over” to create the zero gravity segment of the parabola. For the next 20-30 seconds everything in the plane is weightless. Next a gentle pull-out is started which allows the flyers to stabilize on the aircraft floor. This maneuver is repeated 12-15 times, each taking about ten miles of airspace to perform.

The first time I tried to enter the video didn't start. The second one I couldn't hear it. But at last I could. Thank you for the page Miss Florence, I really going to have it handy. For instance.

Hi Florence,

I read the page and saw the video. I understand more a less, but I did understand some things. Thanks for posting it, now I understand much better.
Bye Bye!
See you.

Hi florence
I never thought that you could reach the zero gravity on a plane.
I understand that by doing parabolas in a certain speed there is zero gravity!
At the top of the parabola you could attain zero gravity for 20/30 seconds

Hi Miss Ale
The website was very intresting. I think physics is a very important topic. It was amazing too see that when you are in a plane there is 0 gravity, THAT IS UNBELIVEABLE!!!
