Eighth parabolic flight for the DLR - Airbus A300 ZERO-G on its second visit to Germany
In May 2006 the German Aerospace Center (DLR) is carrying out its eighth parabolic flight with the Airbus A300 ZERO-G. The world’s largest flying laboratory will take off from Cologne-Bonn Airport before performing a total of five research flights in zero gravity. The aircraft will fly up to 31 parabolas during each flight, producing around 22 seconds of weightlessness. Scientists will use these vital seconds to carry out research in biology, human physiology, physics and materials research.
