Couple Weds in Zero-Gravity

Anyone with over $16,000 to spare can follow in the footsteps of Noah Fulmore and Erin Finnegan, who’ve made one small step for their relationship, and one giant leap for matrimony, in a weightless environment. A 209,500 pound flight gadget made the zero-gravity wedding possible.

$16,000+ apparently gets you a trip on a modified Boeing 727, designed to climb and drop quickly (the latter part to negate gravity for weightlessness), under the supervision of NASA. Bornrich.org reports the entire flight took 90 minutes, and involved 16 climbs and dives.

The newlyweds, both from New York and science fiction fans, said the next step was to deliver their first child in zero-gravity, to test the effects of weightlessness on neonatal existence. That was a joke, of course.

    Cool, now I know where to hold my birthday party. I’d have to ask for my presents in advance though. You know, to cover the costs :).
