Submitted by NoGravity
NoGravity (1011153) writes "For a few seconds on Thursday, astrophysicist Stephen Hawking expects to feel the exhilaration of escaping his paralysis and floating free in zero gravity. "'For someone like me whose muscles don't work very well, it will be bliss to be weightless,"' Hawking told The Associated Press in an interview ahead of his planned zero gravity flight."
