Extraordinary Kids fly in ZERO GRAVITY ! 4K

The European Space Agency (ESA) and Novespace, subsidiary of CNES, offered a weightless experience to 8 disable kids, with the help of the association organizing the “Rêves de Gosse” (Kids’ dreams) event.

The kids came from five ESA member states – UK, France, Germany, Belgium, and Italy – and boarded the converted Airbus A310 Zero G in Bordeaux, France on 24 August as part of this “Kid’s Weightless Dreams” flight. True weightlessness is produced in the large cabin area of this aircraft during repetitive parabolic maneuvers, as in the Air Zero G flights operated by Novespace.

The children also took part in education experiments including lighting a candle, mixing liquids of different densities, playing ping-pong with bubbles of water and working a fidget spinner to demonstrate the effects of weightlessness.

Joining the children were ESA astronauts from their corresponding member states: Tim Peake (UK), Frank De Winne (Belgium), Maurizio Cheli (Italy), Thomas Reiter (Germany), Claudie Haigneré and Jean-Francois Clervoy (France) mentored the children on board and answered their questions.

Two disabled adults, former athlete and German television personality Samuel Koch, a strong advocate for disabled causes, and Philippe Carette, a very active Rêve de Gosse volunteer and pilot, also took part in the flight.

ESA director general Jan Wörner joined the Kid’s Weightless Dreams flight: “ESA is delighted to support this initiative. Educating and inspiring as diverse audience as possible, including youth, on science and spaceflight is among our priorities and extending this outreach mission to children of all capabilities is doubly rewarding.”

The flight was organized by “Rêves de Gosse”, who have been working for over 20 years to bring “extraordinary” children (affected by disability or illness) and “ordinary” children together, working on education projects related to aviation and ending in a flight on an aircraft. This year, weightlessness made the culmination of their project extra special.

Organizations in five countries selected the children: Fondation Richard in Lyon, France; The German Sports University in Cologne, Germany; We Fly! Team in Seniga, Italy; Happy Days Children Charity in Luton, UK; Fondation Saint-Luc in Bruxelles, Belgium.

Des enfants extraordinaires flottent en apesanteur !! 4K

L’Agence Spatiale Européenne (ESA) et Novespace, filiale du CNES, ont offert à 8 enfants de vivre l’expérience de l’apesanteur, avec l’aide de l’association qui organise l’événement “Rêves de Gosse”.

Les enfants venant de cinq Etats membres de l’ESA – Le Royaume-Uni, la France, l’Allemagne, la Belgique et l’Italie – sont montés à bord de l’Airbus A310 Zero G à Bordeaux le 24 août, pour ce vol “Rêves de Gosse en Apesanteur”. Ils ont vécu la vraie apesanteur que Novespace propose dans ses vols Air Zero G.

Les enfants ont aussi assisté à des expériences éducatives comme allumer des bougies, mélanger des liquides de différentes densités, jouer au ping-pong avec des bulles d’eau, ou encore manipuler un Hand Spinner pour montrer les effets de l’apesanteur.

Des astronautes de l’ESA des Etats membres correspondants ont rejoint les enfants : Tim Peake (Royaume-Uni), Frank De Winne (Belgique), Maurizio Cheli (Italie), Thomas Reiter (Allemagne), Claudine Haigneré (France) et Jean-François Clervoy (France) étaient à bord pour les encadrer et répondre à leurs questions.

Deux adultes handicapés ont aussi participé à ce vol : l’Allemand Samuel Koch, fervent défenseur de la cause des handicapés, et le Français Philippe Carette, un bénévole de l’association Rêves de Gosse.

Le Directeur Général de l’ESA, Jan Wörner, a aussi participé au vol “Rêves de Gosse en Apesanteur” : « L’ESA est ravie de soutenir cette initiative. Eduquer à la science et aux vols spatiaux, inspirer le public le plus large possible, y compris les jeunes, figure parmi nos priorités. Pouvoir en faire profiter des enfants de toutes conditions est doublement gratifiant ».

Le vol a été organisé par Rêves de Gosse, qui propose depuis plus de 20 ans d’amener des enfants “extraordinaires” (affectés de handicap ou de maladie) et des enfants “ordinaires”, à travailler ensemble sur des projets éducatifs liés à l’aviation, et se terminant par un vol dans un avion. Cette année, l’apesanteur a été le point culminant de leur projet très spécial.

Des organisations ont sélectionné les enfants dans les cinq pays : la Fondation Richard à Lyon, en France ; L’Université du Sport à Cologne, en Allemagne ; L’association We Fly ! à Seniga, en Italie ; Happy Days Children Charity à Luton, au Royaume-Uni ; et la Fondation Saint-Luc à Bruxelles en Belgique.
