Forget the beach, Upton goes for zero-gs (Video)

WASHINGTON – She’s been to Antarctica, so why not a photo shoot to mimic outer space?

For Sports Illustrated’s annual swim suit edition, Kate Upton posed inside a zero gravity simulator in Cape Canaveral, Fla. The model shot a more typical tropical scene for the back cover of the magazine’s fiftieth anniversary special.

Upton has been featured on the front cover of two previous swimsuit issues.

Models Chrissy Teigen, Nina Agdal and Lily Aldridge posed together for this year’s front cover shot.

The magazine hit newsstands this week. You can see more photos, watch videos and explore a gallery of all 50 front covers at
