By Euronews

<p>If you fly any plane in the right way at the right speed, you can go weightless, at least for a few seconds. By effectively throwing the aircraft into orbit within the Earth’s atmosphere you can enter the wonderful world of the parabolic flight.</p> <p>It is one of the best ways to simulate the environment of space, and is a valuable experimental tool for scientists with a special interest in microgravity. Whether they want to find out how the brain works, study the natural position of humans in space, or how water boils in a weightless environment, this is the way to do it. </p> <p>Take a journey into a free-floating world of the parabola in this edition of Space.</p> <p><a href="http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=euronewsknowledge"><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/223088/493x225_knowledge-youtube-design_2120x1192_vega_v2.jpg"/></a></p>
