Peter Carnesciali (left), a junior in computer engineering from Ballwin, Mo., says floating in microgravity is something “you can’t imagine until you feel it. It’s mind-blowing.”

Carnesciali and Kevin King, a senior in aerospace engineering from Houston, Mo., spent a week in Houston, Texas, with fellow members of the Miners in Space Team as part of NASA’s Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program. The students flew aboard NASA’s Weightless Wonder aircraft to test how CPR could be improved in a microgravity environment.
