To visit a state of weightlessness now have chance either professional cosmonauts, or rich people who presume to become space tourists or to go to flight by the special plane. However in the near future this experience becomes accessible and usual people. And all thanks to attraction Vomit Comet!
While company Virgin Galactic develops and implements a project to launch space tourists into suborbital flights for relatively little money, the Californian firm BRC Imagination Arts has created a concept of rather unusual attraction for entertaining parks. This installation, on an idea of founders, should give to a wide range of people possibility to visit weightlessness.
After all many dreamed to become cosmonauts, however only it was possible to units, really to depart to space. And here by means of attraction Vomit Comet endure sensations of launch on the rocket thousand and thousand people can. Vomit Comet represents something similar to a roller coaster. Here only instead of carriages in it planes KC-135A will be used, on which NASA prepares astronauts for the future flights. However, without wings. At first this module will be dispersed till speed of 160 kilometres per hour, leaving thus on ascending upwards. Thus the people who are inside, will feel an overload 2G. And practically at once, having reached to the very top, the plane will start to fall downwards. Here at the expense of this difference at it inside microweightlessness by duration of 8-10 seconds also will be reached.
To passengers at an input on attraction Vomit Comet different small things of type of tennis balls and ropes that they were personally convinced available a state of weightlessness in the module will stand out. By company BRC Imagination Arts calculations, cost of creation of such attraction will make 40-60 million dollars. However it will be paid quickly back, after all weightlessness is a unique condition which you will not achieve in other ways. Therefore it is possible to expect the future agiotage around Vomit Comet. Besides, it will be possible to lease this attraction NASA and to scientists. After all the cost price of flights on KC-135A where above, than operation Vomit Comet.
