Reduced Gravity Experiments

Six teams of high school students and teachers were chosen to build and conduct experiments in freefall, in a World Year of Physics 2005 contest. These teams flew their experiments aboard NASA’s reduced gravity parabolic aircraft (aka the Vomit Comet) in May 2006.

This project is being sponsored by the American Physical Society, NASA's Johnson Space Center and NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center.
