Experiencing low gravity for the first time is not for the faint of heart.

Space.com senior writer Tereza Pultarova can attest to this, having recently flown a special flight designed to simulate the moon’s lower gravity for scientific research and astronaut training. Pultarova experienced lunar gravity during what’s known as parabolic flight, during which an aircraft performs a series of steep climbs and dives that create short periods of reduced gravity or even zero gravity. The aviators and crew members of these flights are some of the best test pilots the world has to offer.
