Riding the “Vomit Comet”

NASA Vomit Comet studentsThis June, four TCNJ students took a ride on a NASA DC-9 jet—affectionately referred to as the “vomit comet”—as part of NASA’s Microgravity University. Brandon Bentzley ’08, Mike Hvasta ’08, Justin Nieusma ’09, all physics majors, and Rachel Sherman ’09, a physics education major, were accepted into the highly selective program based on a research proposal they submitted last semester.
