Reporter vs Astronaut Centrifuge
A CNN reporter decides to take a whirl in a Star City centrifuge, designed to prepare astronauts and cosmonauts for space launches. Needless to say, it should have been left to the professionals.

Good find and all though brief shows that not every one is cut out to be an astronaut,also is a good example of the rigorous training that the astronauts have to endure.

Only 4 g's.......I would love to take a ride in the centerfuge. That reporter is very lucky.....And No not everyone can do it. Takes a special breed to be an astronaut.

I would say it takes a determined breed to undergo extensive astronaut training. I always wondered what it would be like to be in space looking back at my home planet.
