Kate Upton is Out of This World in Sports Illustrated Space Shoot

She’s not afraid to go to great lengths to get the perfect shot, and Kate Upton took a ride in the G-Force One Boeing 727 for a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit spread.

The two-time SI cover girl and her photography crew boarded the aircraft and once they were airborne the pilot performed 17 parabolas, including “13 zero gravity and four replicating lunar gravity.”

And while the finished images look quite impressive, the video of the shoot reveals some of the precarious positions in which Kate found herself.

Furthermore, Ms. Upton is featured in a video montage of all the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models in celebration of the 50th Anniversary issue!
