ABSTRACT
The article presents information on Elegant Resorts product manager Justine Pitt. It is stated that Pitt never thought her job would involve being spun around to recreate the g-forces encountered while breaking the earth's atmosphere to reach space. Pitt admitted she had been unsure about space travel to begin with, everything changed the moment she experienced the NASTAR centrifuge, which is used to mimic intense g-forces.
