As part of the ongoing battle between skateboarders and gravity, Tony Hawk and Aaron “Jaws” Homoki boarded a specially designed aircraft in an attempt to pickle the laws of the universe once and for all.

The skateboarders, who teamed with Sony for the stunt, used a Zero Gravity Corporation plane – similar to NASA’s famed “vomit comet” – which flew in parabolas to simulate gravity that would be found in places other than Earth.

“We’ve been battling gravity our whole lives,” Hawk says in the video. “And today we get to try some tricks that we’ve only ever dreamed about.”
