Please Don’t Ask Why Sports Illustrated Photographed Kate Upton in Zero Gravity

As part of Sports Illustrated’s 50th anniversary Swimsuit Issue, the magazine sent Kate Upton 34,000 feet into the sky in a specially modified airplane that created a zero gravity environment for about 30 seconds at a time. SI then photographed Upton floating around.

Please note that any discussion about why, exactly, SI did this is strongly discouraged.

The only reason for photographing a bikini-clad Upton floating in an airplane is that it can happen. There is no further explanation necessary. We look forward to next year’s issue, which we hear will feature Upton donning a brightly colored bikini while running from an active volcano.

Until then, see below for more pictures of zero g Upton.
