San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and his fiancé, Jennifer Siebel, went aboard one of the first zero-gravity flights for the general public from NASA’s Moffett Federal Airfield this past Saturday.

Zero Gravity Corp., the first and only FAA-approved provider of commercial weightless flights (at $3,500 per ticket), says “Newsom and Siebel flew like Superman, flipped like Olympic gymnasts and enjoyed 10-times more hang-time than the world’s best basketball player. The newly engaged duo floated on cloud nine as they danced mid-air in the rare and exalted state of weightlessness.”

Wow. They took a “vomit comet” ride, and I think I’M becoming nauseated.
