First Zero-Gravity Wedding Planned

samzenpus posted more than 4 years ago | from the vomit-comet-nuptials dept.

News 133

Trenchcoatjedi writes "A couple from Brooklyn, NY are planning the first wedding in zero gravity. The wedding will take place June 20th aboard a parabolic flight operated by Zero G Corp and will be officiated by Richard Garriott of Ultima fame. The dress is designed by a Japanese haute couture designer and is specifically intended to be worn in zero gravity. Even the wedding rings will be made from meteorite."

Apparently there will be no honeymoon. The wedding has already been cancelled because the bride's father found out he is expected to shell out over $2 billion to cover the $20 million launch tickets for all the guests. That cheap bastard. I told my sister not to marry into poverty!

Re:No time to change your mind (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#28219051)

Whilst what s/he says is entirely factually correct, it's still sexist, because it's selective observation. Notice that he left out the observation that 'men are stupid because they spend several months pay just to get a few extra inches extra on the already-massive new TV, that no-one will even notice?'*. It's like if you "observe" that black people commit crime. That's racist, because EVERYONE commits crime, and specifying 'black people' insinuates that they're the only culprits.

*Disclaimer: As a man, I think that it's totally worth it/awesome, but YMMV.

They all are moot for this event, as this wedding will be taking place well in the atmosphere. Furthermore it seems they will also be in US airspace, so the only legal issues would have already been ironed-out by few crazy fools that get married while skydiving.

Parabolic flights are simulated zero G. If I jump out of a plane in a cardboard box, then I, too have the illusion of zero G. In relation to my confining cardboard walls, I think I am floating. These flights are exactly the same principle. When they marry onboard a Virgin Galactic flight, then we can argue. Even then, they will be in micro gravity, not true "Zero G."

Really what's the difference between orbit and a Vomit Comet - besides the fact that the latter is aimed so that it'll hit the ground sooner or or later, and the former isn't? From the relativistic point of view, there isn't really much - just different tracks through a curved region of spacetime. I mean, I suppose objects may be slightly more energetic in orbit and time will elapse at a slightly faster rate, but it's not that much.

Really, we only experience the feeling of gravity when we try to stop it. (Like when the ground's in the way.) Want to free yourself entirely form the influence of gravity from distant objects that affects the shape of the spacetime you're in ? Sorry, buddy, try another universe.

speaking of Vomit Comet, it has that name for a reason - and I imagine they may want to restrain from "you may now kiss the bride" until they hit gravity again.

Couple marries in zero g, then both die choking on vomit. We don't know who's vomit it was, you can't exactly dust for vomit (with thanks to Spinal Tap for that one).

Who modded the parent "insightful"? Sounds like a -1 flamebait to me. When you plan and design anything, you come up with solutions to problems, or you do something that's already there more efficient, is engineering. No matter if it's a software or a bridge. Take the idea off your head that the only thing computer engineers do is build up computers or program all day long.

Sorry, but I had to take the bait.

Re:Not really (1)

Not to mention computer engineers are a subset of electrical engineers (and yes, I was a computer engineering major for a while before changing majors - it was basically EE with focus on chip design and nearly all coding is microcode [wikipedia.org]). He probably meant software engineers, who usually get the ribbing in this area, in which case I say he should go shove a rose bush up his ass (or wait, yeah, mod flamebait).

Re:Not really (1)

EvanED (569694) | more than 4 years ago | (#28218931)

Parabolic flights are simulated zero G.

How do you simulate zero G?

Here's another hint: 'zero G' doesn't mean 'zero gravity' (which is actually an incorrect term even for space). It means that the body is experiencing the equivalent of zero G. Just like a fighter pilot in a tight turn might be at eight Gs doesn't mean that he went to Neptune or some place where the gravitational force is eight times as strong. (Disclaimer: Neptune is actually 17x the Mass of Earth.)

From Wikipedia [wikipedia.org]: "The g-force of an object is 0 g in any weightless environment such as free-fall or an orbiting satellite" (emphasis mine).

You know what'd be interesting? Going back to the way it was about 400 years ago, before the church took over what was a mutual personal vow. See, until the Counter-Reformation, you didn't need a church or anything: you said "I marry you", she said "I marry you", there, done, married, you may now bed the bride. Now seriously, your word was as good as any signed contract; that, I think, is far more beautiful and moving than any pompous ceremony.

Example: I doubt anyone's been married on waterskis before. Or while submerged and in Scuba gear. Or with a priest who has recently inhaled large quantities of helium.

For that matter, you lack imagination about other reasons one might not want to be married in a church -- one might be Jewish, or Muslim, or Wiccan, or Pagan, or Buddhist, or Taoist, or Hindu, or atheist, or anything in between. Even if one is Christian, it wouldn't quite be a traditional marriage if it was between homosexuals -- and that assumes your local church will do it. And even if you're Christian and straight, and have no desire to be original, you might want to save a little money and have a smaller wedding at home with friends, or outside if it's a nice day.

But even so, it'd be damned cool to be able to show your future kids and grandkids that your wedding is in the Guinness Book of World Records.

In the steady state, skydiving is 1 G. You might be able to feel ~0.2 G for ~5 sec after you suddenly change your shape from a flat star to a vertical 'I', but that's about it.

dmatos (232892) | more than 4 years ago | (#28222303)

Agreed. Once acceleration is no longer 9.8m/s^2 due to wind resistance, you feel the force of gravity. Once you've reached terminal velocity, your inner ear can't tell the difference between falling from an airplane and standing on the ground.

Free fall without air resistance is exactly the same phenomenon as "Zero Gravity" or "Microgravity".

In fact, orbit is exactly like this -- it is free fall. The only difference is that the trajectory takes you around the earth instead of into it.

Yes, that is a difference worth noting, but that's more like the difference between a water bottle and a water fountain. It's still water, it's just that the bottle will run out -- the plane will have to level off (or smack into the ground).

So if 45% of people get sick, either bride or groom or the minister will not make it through the ceremony... Qute from our beloved Wikipedia: The most common problem experienced by humans in the initial hours of weightlessness is known as space adaptation syndrome or SAS, commonly referred to as space sickness. Symptoms of SAS include nausea and vomiting, vertigo, headaches, lethargy, and overall malaise. The first case of SAS was reported by cosmonaut Gherman Titov in 1961. Since then, roughly 45% of all people who have flown in space have suffered from this condition. The duration of space sickness varies, but in no case has it lasted for more than 72 hours, after which the body adjusts to the new environment. NASA jokingly measures SAS using the "Garn scale", named for United States Senator Jake Garn, whose SAS during STS-51-D was the worst on record. Accordingly, one "Garn" is equivalent to the most severe possible case of SAS.[13] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weightlessness [wikipedia.org]

So based on international treaty no government can lay claim to anything on the moon nor the moon itself as property. But Garriot is the first private person, that I know of, to have property on the moon and actually has the first step in claiming his own lunar plot.
