Kate Upton's breasts are even perkier than usual in the photos taken for Sports Illustrated's 2014 Swimsuit Issue—because she modeled while flying in zero gravity. Upton went on a Zero Gravity Corporation flight in March 2013, where she experienced weightlessness and was photographed while floating through the air, LiveScience reports. The company's modified Boeing 727 flies thousands of feet in the air, doing parabolic arcs that allow passengers to be weightless for 30 seconds at a time. The issue went on sale yesterday; you can see plenty of photos here. (More Kate Upton stories.)
