Perhaps it would be nice to show that a hammer can still drive a nail or sm=
ash a whatever, while in a weightless environment.

What a great opportunity! One idea would be to show that a bubble does not=
experience a buoyant force in the absence of gravity. Introduce a bubble =
in a bottle and it should stay in place unless currents in the fluid move i=
t.

Hello all,

In April, I will be taking a ride on the NASA Microgravity airplane as a fa=
culty advisor to some Yale students who are working on a microgravity exper=
iment. There will be an opportunity to film some zero g demonstrations when=
the experiment is not running. Are there any that you would like to see?

I might be able to give PIRA a plug while I'm at it.

-Stephen.
