When I'm in free fall, I'm weightlessness for only about 1-2 seconds. Is there any way I can feel weightlessness for a longer period of time?

    $\begingroup$ Errr.. Fall further! $\endgroup$ – Rob Jeffries Apr 12 '15 at 12:48
  • $\begingroup$ The cheapest way is to jump from a building, but unfortunately, most people don't survive the collision at the bottom. Next cheapest (and survivable) would be sky jumping. $\endgroup$ – LDC3 Apr 12 '15 at 16:55
  • $\begingroup$ @LDC3: Neither of these will give you reasonable weightlessness for much longer than two seconds because aerodynamic drag starts giving you proper acceleration quite quickly. $\endgroup$ – JulianHzg Aug 1 '15 at 15:15

Establish a longer free fall time, for example in an aircraft or space station.


There are private space companies that will allow you to take a trip to space(it costs around $250,000). Take a trip and go in orbit around the earth or go to another space station. Another solution would be to go to the Zero-G place as Lasse said or fall farther as Rob Jeffries said which are both much less expensive.
