zero gravity

The condition of apparent weightlessness occurring when a body in a gravitational field moves in such a way as to counterbalance its gravitational force. For example, astronauts orbiting Earth in a shuttle or space station experience zero gravity because the spacecraft continually accelerates in its orbit in order to prevent it from being pulled into the atmosphere. This acceleration, which is often referred to as a centrifugal force, counterbalances gravity exactly.
