Hawking take a 0G fly

Stephen Hawking, the father of our present understanding on black holes and the universe growth, finally managed to take the now popular zero gravity flight.
Along with his whole medical staff, he got to gravitate for some seconds in each dive the special airforce plane took to compensate earth's gravity field.

I know this might sound kindda trivial, but just consider that this man, the father of modern physics, has been in a wheel chair for more than four decades and that he's unable to move anypart of his body except fot some facial muscles, and given that he has teach us how gravity really works in the universe, it's fair for him to expience the lack of it.
