Woo hoo! We finally managed to collect some meaningful (and very interesting data) on a 0G flight!!

Even though we had spent hours trying to negotiate a way for me to be allowed to join Mark on the 0G flight toady, and had finally been given permission to fly as long as we accepted all responsibility for my health condition worsening, we decided that it would probably be best that I stay on the ground. Initially I just couldnt understand why they were so concerned about mild asthma and I was really disappointed, but I realized that these doctors deal with space flight and space medicine a whole lot more often than I do and they definitely know what they are talking about, so I accepted my defeat graciously (and without any serious motion sickness either).
