    It made me feel that they were in space because they were floating and in space you could float and the balls that were floating is it looked like the lanterns in rapunzel.It makes me wonder how they did that because it would be a lot of money for all of them to go to space so I wonder how they made all of them float like that.

    The video gave me a lot of laughter & excitement, because it was really funny when the people kept on hitting their heads on the ceiling.

    this makes me think about their safety rules they all hit their own heads and are falling on each other then one of them got kicked in the butt it so funny i can watch it for days

    I was wondering if can they get hurt from falling down hard. I thought that it is cool that they are in mid air with ping pong balls.

    This video makes me feel happy and it also makes me laugh because of the music and the amount of ping pongs that are just floating with all the people just floating around and struggling to maintain balance was very funny.

    The video made me laugh because when they all experience 0 gravity they all hit their head on the top.

    This video makes me think of when lanterns go into the sky like in rapunzel because it looked pretty. In my opinion it would have been cooler if there were little light and maybe the balls glowed.

    This video makes me think how can many teachers be in one place where there is no gravitation and throw orang ping pong balls in the air like they don’t care at all. My favorite part was when the gravitation went off and all the people just fell and that was super funny too. This video makes me wonder,how did they do that? And also in my mind I was thinking that all the people going up could have said weeee! Over all it was super funny.

    This video made me feel very happy because,we were able to see how many teachers are experiencing zero gravity and also the ping pong balls were wondering around and it made me feel really satisfied.

    It makes me laugh because they are all floating and all of a sudden they all fall and I was wondering what they were doing with all the balls.

  12. ethanhunt104

    I think it’s funny and how non gravity can just make things float also weird because they can just float around

  13. angelnotsoangel11

    I make’s me feel relaxed because of the music makes me laugh. I wonder how they did that.
