Submission + - Buy a zero-G flight with Stephen Hawking

invader_allan writes: A charitable organization, starlight starbright, will be receiving the proceeds from an auction to accompany Stephen Hawking on his zero-G flight. From the auction: "You and a guest can fly weightless with Prof. Stephen Hawking on The ZERO-G Experience(TM)! The flight will take off from the Shuttle Landing Facility at the Kennedy Space Center in Central Florida on April 26, 2007. The package will also include a three night stay at the JW Marriott Hotel Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida, from April 24-April 27!"
