    ‘Vomit Comet’
    Randy Pausch
    a student project had earned Pausch a ride on the “vomit comet”


  8. Tushar

    The guy is Randy Pausch. The flight is the zero gravity simulator of NASA. It’s called the Weightless Wonder or the Vomit Comet.


  9. Tushar

    The guy is the late Prof Randy Pausch. The flight is the zero gravity simulator of NASA. It’s called the Weightless Wonder or the Vomit Comet.

    Connect is that Randy Pausch got a chance to experience zero gravity by pretending to be a journalist. (as only students were allowed onto this and he was a Prof then)

    The Vomit Comet is a no-brainer. It took a while to figure out who the guy is. Very inspirational.

    KC-135, nicknamed Vomit Comet

    Mr. Randy Pausch (strongly recommend his book ‘The Last Lecture’)
    Pausch had a dream of being in zero gravity. When he was the computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, he learned of a program that NASA has that allows college students to go up into the air in NASA’s Vomit Comet. Faculty members were not allowed to go, so he had to present himself as a web journalist, because local media was allowed on.
