A couple from Brooklyn (no, wait, they're SF fans) will be the first to marry in zero-G. The video -- a promotional bit from the commercial outfit that flies freefall parabolas for anyone (who can take it) with the price of a ticket -- is worth watching.
I don't know if anyone on the Hidden Frontier has preceded them to the zero-G hitchin' post but it seems unlikely; it's just not all that easy to grab free time during those occasions when a starship's not under acceleration. Floating is fun but life's easier when down is down.
Speaking of which, the next installment of I Work On A Starship, "Another Day, Part 11," is about ready to post. Watch this space!
