October 13, 2017

This is a video of a group of eight children and two adults living with disabilities getting to experience weightlessness aboard an Airbus A310 flying in parabolic arcs to simulate zero-gravity. The Rêves de Gosse (Kids' Dreams) event was organized by Les Chevaliers du Ciel (The Knights Of Heaven), along with the European Space Agency, and noveSpace (who operate the plane). There's a lot of buildup, but I recommend watching the whole thing for MAXIMUM EMOTION. Personally, I found 0:31, 0:53, 1:23, 1:34, 1:44, and 1:50 - 3:05 all particularly great places to cry.

Keep going for the video, and make sure you have the volume on.

Thanks to Lucinda, for your feel-good video of the day.

    Surprise Ryan Gosling at 2:12!

    This is something I've always wanted to do.

    And I would gladly trade any opportunity I could ever have to do this in order to allow kids like these to experience this a 1000 times over.
