Some hope from NASA

NASA has decided to buy parabolic flights from Zero-G corporation rather than running their own "Vomit Comet." I think this is a good sign. I wonder if I can buy a ticket for one of the astronauts flights...

Unfortunately if you read a bit further into it, they are still planning on starting operations next year with their own parabolic vehicle. These two Zero-G flights they're buying are purely to "evaluate the quality of the microgravity" to see if Zero-G is suitable for any of their needs....They still might do the right thing by actually just becoming a customer and canceling their own parabolic vehicle, but I'm not holding my breath.
