Name: Rose Pastore
Role at Fast Company: Assistant news editor
Titillating Fact: Two months before I started at Fast Company, I went on a parabolic flight with NASA. I panicked during the first few seconds of floating; I was convinced I (or the plane) had flipped upside down. One of my most vivid memories is seeing the seat belts rise toward the ceiling. I didn’t vomit, thanks to the scopolamine injection I got right before the flight, but the anti-nausea drug did make me feel a bit stoned. I was there to cover a neat student experiment that tested whether a portable ultrasound machine works in zero gravity.
