OK Go flies in zero G for its latest music video

Floating weightlessly is so much fun... if you're not susceptible to motion sickness.

Chicago-based band OK Go has released a fun and colorful music video shot entirely inside a parabolic plane. Since a parabolic flight goes up and down like a wave, it induces periods of microgravity and hypergravity (1.8 times the strength of gravity). Space agencies have been using the technique for decades to train their astronauts before shipping them off to space.

While it looks like the band had lots of fun -- you can see them in the video floating weightlessly and doing acrobatics -- these flights are no joke. They can be so intense that NASA's first parabolic plane was dubbed the "Vomit Comet." OK Go joined forces with Russian carrier S7 Airlines to shoot the video, but you have a choice closer to home that's tried and tested by Stephen Hawking.
