A4H Member flies "Coach" on ZERO-G

A4H member and ZERO-G Coach Todd Romberger flew aboard Zero Gravity Corporation’s G-FORCE ONE aircraft out of Dallas, TX last weekend with John Carmack and members of the Armadillo Aerospace team. The flight included one Martian gravity (1/3-G) parabola, two lunar gravity (1/6-G) parabolas, and twelve weightless (0-G) parabolas. This was Todd’s 21st flight as a ZERO-G Coach and brought his total parabolas to 329, equating to roughly 2 hours and 45 minutes of total microgravity time. Video of the flight, taken by Matt Ross of Armadillo Aerospace (with a little camerawork help from Todd), can be found on Armadillo’s YouTube channel.
