The best weighted blankets in 2019: Gravity, Bearaby and more

The best weighted blankets in 2019: Gravity, Bearaby and more These are some of the most stylish and well-rated weighted blankets you can buy.

In space, there is no up or down. That’s because there is no gravity in space. Astronauts and everything else aboard a spacecraft float freely.

Earthlings can experience the feeling of zero gravity without blasting into space. How? A zero-gravity flight. An airplane flies in a series of parabolas, or arcs. Each arc creates a temporary zero-gravity environment. Everyone and everything inside the plane floats freely for about 30 seconds.

“There is truly no other feeling like it on Earth,” Michelle Peters told TIME for Kids. She works for Zero-G. The company organizes zero-gravity flights for scientists and teachers. It also takes passengers as young as 8 on flights that are just for fun.

Justin Trudeau, the Instagram Prime Minister, Struggles to Resonate with Young Voters

  Justin Trudeau, the Instagram Prime Minister, Struggles to Resonate with Young Voters Four years ago Emmanuel Amoussa, a chemistry student, voted for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada, drawn by what he saw as a young progressive leader whose policies on climate change and immigration resonated with him and other members of his generation. This time, though, Mr. Amoussa, who is now 22 and studies at the Université de Montréal, won’t be voting for Mr. Trudeau’s Liberal Party. Disappointed by the prime minister’s environmental policies and put off by recent revelations that he dressed in brownface 18 years ago, Mr. Amoussa said he planned to vote for the Green Party.

Space Science

Gravity affects the human body, the behavior of plants, the way machines run, and more. Going to space is expensive and risky. But zero-gravity flights mimic the conditions of space. They are a helpful tool for scientists. They create an environment where scientists can experiment.

Nikolaus Kuhn is a scientist. He flew with Zero-G to do research. He studied the flow of water on Mars. There is less gravity on Mars than on Earth. This means water flows more slowly on Mars. Zero-G pilots can make their parabolas less steep. This creates the feeling of Martian gravity.

Flying with Zero-G has been essential for Kuhn’s work. He says it is the only way for him to investigate the behavior of water on Mars without going there.

As humans continue to explore the universe beyond Planet Earth, zero-gravity flights will remain an important—and fun—tool. “It never gets old,” says Peters of Zero-G. “I would do it every weekend for the rest of my life if I could.”

These are some of the most stylish and well-rated weighted blankets you can buy.Usually weighing between 10 and 20 pounds, weighted blankets provide deep pressure all over your body, which promotes the production of serotonin. This neurotransmitter regulates your mood, keeps your digestive system working and battles insomnia, helping you sleep better.
