Watch a drone drop a microgravity capsule in 1st-of-its-kind experiment (video)

The article states that 5 seconds microgravity time is much more than in a drop tower.
To my knowledge the ZARM drop tower can give almost 10 seconds in one mode.

Also, the article does not mention the possibility to launch on sounding rockets, which gives around 5 minutes of micorgravity conditions.

Now, I see this cool venture as a first step for researchers on their way to longer times on parabolic flights, sounding rockets or orbital platforms.
