Through the NASA ‘Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunities Program’, four juniors from Duke University were given the chance to perform a study aboard NASA’s ‘KC-135A’ (aka the "Vomit Comet").

The four students designed and carried out experiments on the effects of microgravity on a subject of their choosing whilst living on board the craft.

They opened a blog entitled "Duke's Vomit Comet" to follow their adventures to and provide information about their experiments. It’s hardly extensive or well-read, but it’s a fun look into your ‘average’ student living out every young guys' dream and taking charge of a big thing.

My favourite part has to be the caption underneath a pic of the students floating mid-air ... ”John's floating ... as well as everybody else on the plane”. It’s nice to see that such a scientific basic as gravity can still astound even part-time astronauts.
