We sent in a proposal to fly on NASA's KC-135 airplane, also known as the Vomit Comet, through the Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunities Program. Our proposal was one of 44 projects that flew in March 1999.
As part of the program, we spent two weeks in Houston, much of it working with Pyrotechnics Engineers at Johnson Space Center.
