Flight Day 1: simply awesome
First flight day! Excitement, inquietude, focus. Nico and Dan are the first to fly during this zero-g season. They are getting dressed up and infused with drugs against motion sickness, while the other crew members are running final checks on the experiment. Every action follows a timed checklist to ensure perfect departure conditions.
T minus 10 minutes: the crew is boarding. Our special guest is the first Australian football to float in weightlessness!
T minus 5 minutes: Taxing to the runway.
In a total of 11 minutes of weightlessness per flight day, there is plenty of time for good science and heaps of fun! Special thanks to the Swiss watchmaker Breitling, our biggest private sponsor.
