Behold the pinnacle of human invention. Sports Illustrated had the fantastic idea to shoot supermodel Kate Upton into the sky and then film her while she floated around in a bikini. Now we all know what Kate Upton looks like at Zero-G in a swimsuit. The answer, unsurprisingly, is great.

This might be our Icarus moment.

Not to look a beautiful gift horse in the mouth, but dammit this was SO CLOSE to becoming a Barbarella shoot. So close. More pictures at Sports Illustrated. Photographed by James Macari.
