P.S. Today is the 22nd, not the 23rd ;)
Don't ask me why, it's just something I think will be gorgous to watch.
But the draw is on the 23rd. :)
Earlier this year I ticked off driving a steam train and in a few weeks time I'll get to drive a Ford GT40 and a 600hp racing Corvette.
What you could do is go on a parabolic flight. Those are the flights which they use to train astronauts on the effects of weightlessness. I'd like to try that some day.
*astronauts experience the illusion of Zero-G, but they're not actually in Zero-G. When orbiting, they (and the ISS or whatever they're orbiting in) are still falling towards earth - but they're doing so at an angle and speed that means that by the time they fall towards it, earth has in effect 'moved out of the way'. By maintaining this angle and speed, the earth will always be 'moving out of the way', giving the appearance of orbiting the planet. Of course, if you take air resistance out of the equation, everything falls at the same speed, no matter its mass, so because the astronauts and ISS (or whatever) are falling towards earth (and missing) at the same speed, it appears that the astronauts are floating within it, giving the illusion of Zero-G.
micro-g is the correct term
Realistically: Own house
Lego-related: My entire wanted list!
Improbable entry: learn to ride a horse, get a suit of armour with a broadsword and travel around the streets in an eccentric manner. That level of eccentricity would probably need Euromillions-lottery-winnings levels of money to back it up.
LEGO-related: spend a few days (or weeks) in Denmark
In dream world: have a trip around new-zeeland with my son and husband.
Thanks for hosting!
