Gravity is crucial. It allows us to go from point A to point B without much difficulty, and, more importantly, it keeps our phones from floating off our tables. However, there’s a part of us that just can’t help but wonder what it might be like to lighten up and float around.
Part of the reason kids dream about becoming astronauts is the idea of drifting through outer space without anything dragging them down. While there isn’t anywhere in America where we can go that actually has zero gravity, there are some cool spots and activities that will let you temporarily escape its pull—or at least feel like you’re weightless. Some of them require you to live a bit dangerously, but who ever had the time of their life playing it safe?
