Can’t Weight To Be Married

Weightless wedding 

“Head over heels in love” is not just a figure of speech when you  get married in zero-G. In history’s first weightless wedding, the bride and groom exchanged vows during the 20-30 second periods of weightlessness created as their plane flew parabolas in the Earth’s atmosphere between 34,000 and 24,000 feet of altitude:

Over the span of nearly eight minutes, the vows and rings were exchanged in a microgravity environment. The aircraft’s interior has padded floors and walls and video cameras to record the experience.

I hope the fellow officiating at the wedding began by saying, “Micwogwavvity is wot bwings us togevor today.”
