Going To School Weightless

Students get weightless testing personal navigation aid for spaceflight, NSBRI

"Many people resolved to lose weight this year, but seven university students had a different goal - to be "weightless." The students served as both investigators and test subjects in an experiment to examine how a person's sense of direction is impacted by the lack of gravity and whether a simple device can improve the ability to navigate. The student activity, supported by funds from National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) and Excalibur Almaz, was conducted through NASA's Reduced Gravity Student Flight Program."
