Caption: Airbus A300 zero-gravity plane. Zero-G Airbus A300 aeroplane on the upwards ascent portion of a parabolic trajectory. This aircraft flies parabolic trajectories producing a few seconds of free-fall to replicate the near-weightless conditions of Earth orbit. This aircraft has been used by the ESA (European Space Agency), French space agency CNES and German aerospace centre DLR for parabolic trajectories since 1997. Image produced by combining two Sentinel-1A satellite images acquired on 7th and 31st August 2014.
