The First Couple of Zero G’s
A pair of space fanatics will have a wedding that is out of this world when they become the first couple to get married floating in zero gravity at the Kennedy Space Centre.
Noah Fulmor, 31, and Erin Finnegan, 30, will exchange vows on an aircraft at the centre at Cape Canaveral, Florida, that can simulate weightlessness similar to a spaceship in orbit.
The groom will offer the floating bride a ring made of fragments from a meteorite that crashed into the Earth 30,000 years ago….
British space tourist and adventurer Richard Garriott, the son of an astronaut, will officiate at the ceremony during the 90-minute flight, which includes 15 rollercoaster-type dives, known as parabolic arcs, which last up to 30 seconds.
The specially-adapted jet plummets from 36,000 feet to 24,000 feet and then climbs back up – allowing passengers on the Boeing 727 to experience weightlessness without being in space.
Miss Finnegan will wear a designer wedding dress with trousers to protect her modesty during weightlessness. Their handful of guests will have to shell out £3,250 each to witness the ceremony on June 20.
