    For the first time, a couple has been married in zero gravity.. And not only that, but they were married by Richard Garriot!!

    You know, I got to go up on one of these flights with Lord British once, and it was amazing!

    Now, I didn't get married, but they let you play with floating M&Ms and all sorts of cool stuff. I even spun my iPhone in zero-g for the camera. Ahhh... but as the plane rises, you get the reverse and hit nearly 2 G's.

    Word for the wise: *Never* try to eat M&Ms while flat on your back as the plane hits 1.8 Earth gravity.

    Congratulations to the lucky couple!

    I wish he would buy UO back from EA..
     
  10. He didn't mention UO, but in his Wired article a couple months ago he said he spent all his money on his spacetrip. Now, I'm sure he still has some left, but I'd bet he spent the majority on it.

    - As I would definitely do too, if'n I had the wherewithal to. As such, I've been fortunate enough to state as much to a fellow space fan that has ventured into the 'true' zero gravities of space; and I will to go to there, too, if ever I can :)
    Godspeed (I always luv'd that spacey word) & mucho congrats to the zero-g wedding crew.

    This topic is extremely relative to UO: for it is about the founder, Cosmonaut Richard Garriott ;)
