Weightlessness and then 4g's

Wow! I wish I was going... sort of.

"A star-struck Christchurch teenager will soon get a taste of the final frontier at a training camp for aspiring astronauts.
Rosie Bolderston, 17, a year 12 pupil at St Margaret's College, is one of two New Zealand students selected to attend the International Space Camp (ISC) in Huntsville, Alabama, in July.
She will join 150 other students from 23 countries for five days of "astronaut training", including learning about the mental, emotional and physical demands astronauts face, and scuba diving.
She will also experience four Gs of liftoff force and weightlessness in a space simulator."

Dream big dreams - they might come true.
