Man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free.— Jacques Yves Cousteau
Colorful Zero Gravity quotations
In my whole life, I have known no wise people who didn't read all the time, none. Zero.
Obviously, because of my disability, I need assistance.
But I have always tried to overcome the limitations of my condition and lead as full a life as possible. I have traveled the world, from the Antarctic to zero gravity.
Some animals on Earth regurgitate as opposed to vomit, i.
e., stomach contents flow up into the esophagus without any forceful abdominal contractions. What I experienced in zero gravity was similar to this, expulsion without the heaves.
We wanted to be in great shape, we wanted to be able to cope with zero gravity, we wanted to be able to cope with accelerations and decelerations and so on. So all of us trained so that we were probably in the best physical condition we had ever been in up until that point.
I've been noticing gravity since I was very young.
There's no way you can use water to collect waste in zero gravity.
So, basically, our toilet on shuttle operations is a vacuum cleaner. The urinal looks like a Shop-Vac hose. It has different-shaped fronts on it for males and females to use. The urine is sucked down that hose and goes into a tank.
A zero-gravity flight is a first step toward space travel.
Real space movies have to involve zero gravity and a world without up or down.
Space and spacecraft and zero gravity and so forth are very difficult to render.
Opening cans of chili in zero gravity to see how it looks, that's something that went wrong.
It was practically with people with strings.
There was no CG involved, it was just painfully taking Collin [Farrell] and Jessica Biel and putting them upside-down, we built the set upside-down and just try to twist perspective to make it all seem like zero gravity. And it was one of the most difficult things I've ever shot.
When you're in zero gravity everything moves at the same speed and nothing stops it. If you throw something it travels forever but it still travels at the speed you threw it at. To make it plausible, movies have chosen to show it in slow motion.
A person moving in zero gravity feels a pitiful helplessness.
One wrong move and you find yourself spinning wildly. Everyone becomes a baby again in outer space, laboriously learning how to walk.
I think if I had to choose, I would rather have gravity instead of zero gravity.
It's fun for a while, but I'd rather live on Earth.
I've used the Phoenix Centrifuge to replicate what the body's going to go through on the flight up. I've also done some gravity tests with ZERO-G [a charter-flight service in Arlington, Va., that uses modified Boeing 727s to simulate weightlessness], which went great.
