The KC-135 Low-G Flight Research aircraft (a predecessor of the Boeing 707) is used to fly parabolas to create 20-25 seconds of weightlessness so that the astronauts can experience and researchers can investigate the effects of "zero" gravity. As NASA's lead center for microgravity research in the areas of fluid physics and combustion science, NASA Glenn hosts the KC-135 for 6-10 weeks each year in support of its ground-based microgravity research
