The Ascension long week-end. The plane is almost empty, except for the flash&splash team, making sure the experiment will run smoothly next week.
The team is working hard, practicing again and again all the procedures to follow inbetween each parabola. Nothing left to chance. The experiment is working well, and excitment for the flights is growing among the team.
After days of putting all this energy into the experiment, Novespace and the ZERO-G plane are closed on Saturady and Sunday. It is the opportunity for the team to enjoy some of the local delights: wine and fine food...
Saturday is dedicated to a field trip to the dune du Pilat, the highest dune in Europa. The walk, bare feet in the cold sand, is relaxing and quiets everybody's mind of the stress of flying zero-g in a few days.
