Stephen Hawking is getting ready to go into space.
The 75 year old theoretical physicist experience zero gravity for the first time thanks to GoZeroG, a company that uses a modified Boeing 727 to create a zero-gravity environment allowing you to float and move like you were in space.
“I have already completed a zero-gravity flight which allowed me to float, weightless,” Hawking told Good Morning Britain last week.
However Hawking doesn't plan to stop there. He has far more loftier feats in mind.
"My ultimate ambition is to fly into space. I thought no one would take me, but Richard Branson has offered me a seat on Virgin Galactic and I said ‘yes’ immediately.”
Hawking's final review of the zero gravity experience was a resounding thumbs up.
“It was amazing. The zero-g part was wonderful. I could have gone on and on. Space, here I come,” he said.
