The purpose of this page is to explore the idea of making a cheap (under $10,000) drop tower capable of 1.5 seconds or so of microgravity. It would be housed in our auditorium tower, where there is about 55 feet of vertical drop from the roof to the floor. It would need to be retractable - so we can store it some distance off the floor when it is not in use.
