OriginEdit

Edward Makuka Nkoloso was a resident of Zambia and a large proponent of a Zambian space program during the 1960s. He wanted to beat the Cold War powers in the space race and advance scientific research. The program even had plans to establish missionaries with the Martian natives. To practice for spaceflight, he would push candidates in an oil drum downhill to simulate weightlessness. The project was stopped when Nkoloso could not raise enough funds, his astronaut became pregnant and virtually everyone ridiculed his ideas.

EffectsEdit

The drum will keep rolling until it hits an object in the way. During this time, it will cause weightlessness in the people and objects nearby. All laws of physics except for gravity will still apply and affect the subjects.
