High Speed Liquid Observation Platform

Robert Woodhead of Wilmington, NC, had the rare opportunity to ride on G-Force One, a “vomit comet” style zero-G flight, and he’s bringing along a science experiment:

Well, after several days, we have a new launch date – if all goes well, I’ll be in Florida Nov 19-20 to fly on a Zero-G Experimental Flight. These differ from the regular tourist flights in that you get more parabolas (25) and can bring significant equipment onboard.

I had originally planned a simple apparatus but as preparations were made for the flight, it became clear than an enclosed experiment box would be much preferable. So I whipped up a simple setup using MicroRax miniature t-slot.

[Thanks, Chris!]
