While the dudes at Thirsty Swagman are still ironing out the finer details of the actual spaceflight (you know, sifting through the regulations on beer consumption in space and all), they're setting up the next best thing in the meantime: for a cool $5k, you'll hop aboard a "vomit comet" aircraft (with a crew of up to 25 buds -- but absolutely no
Bud Lights) for a sweet zero-G party
In addition to acting out your favorite scenes from Gravity
and/or Space Balls
, you'll imbibe Vostok space beer using a specially-designed zero-G drinking tube that may or may not be connected to a specially-designed zero-G drinking funnel. We're not sure. Either way, parabolic flights are expected to commence early/mid 2015, and the only thing that appears to be missing is Kate Upton in a gold bikini
