This week I have had problems getting out of bed and out of the house on time. Each day a new distraction has presented itself to keep me from getting to work at a decent hour. Could it be because my advisor is out of town? Possibly. The point being - today I finally got a peek at the pictures from the Zero G flights a couple weeks ago. I couldn't wait to download them to my computer and post a few for you all. (NU boys - you'll have to tarry for my MLB picks. But rest assured, I plan to stick up for my boys despite their manhandling by the Mets.) Click on the pictures to see larger versions.
Charlie and I working on the experimental rig during our first flight.
Arthur, Charlie, and I watching as Charlie fires the laser.
Riding that great Space Pony in the sky.... or something like that.
Taking a break to float a little during runs of the experiment. Check out the dame on the right. Who the heck is she? I have no clue.
This may prove to be one of my favorite pictures. I love the fact that I'm completely sideways in the shot.
Arthur filming the cameraman is apparently driving me up a wall.
Chuck is working hard as Arthur and I goof off.
By our fourth day of flying, zero g was a very zen experience.
