Stephen Hawkings, one of the world's greatest physicists, is joining the ranks of those readying themselves for space flight and to experience weightlessness in a zero-gravity environment.
This has been a lifelong dream for Professor Hawkings, despite the fact that he is almost completely paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair.
Implications - According to a statement from the renowned physicist, he is extremely "excited to experience first hand weightlessness and a zero gravity environment." Although he is usually confined to a wheelchair on account of his affliction with Lou Gehrig's disease, his hopes to soar above the planet are made possible by a Florida-based company called Zero Gravity Corporation. Good luck up there, Stephen!
