Kate Upton - Kate Upton defies gravity for Sports Illustrated shoot

Kate Upton's latest photo shoot was set in space.

The curvaceous model poses in a gold bikini while being suspended into the air inside a special zero gravity chamber normally used by astronauts to simulate the weightlessness atmosphere of outer space.

In a new video posted to YouTube the 21-year-old model can be seen floating through the air with ease as she poses for the cameras.

Kate boarded the modified Boeing-727 plane at the Space Coast Regional Airport at Cape Canaveral in Florida where she experienced a series of 17 parabolas - 13 zero gravity and four replicating lunar gravity.

Sports Illustrated magazine have also commissioned former cover star Chrissy Teigen to feature on its cover along with Lily Aldridge and Nina Agdal.

Kate's photo shoot came in celebration of Sports Illustrated magazine's 50th anniversary Swimsuit Issue, the same publication that launched her career by putting her on its cover in 2012.

Since gracing the magazine Kate has gone onto have a successful modelling career, as she's covered three editions of Vogue, fronted numerous ad campaigns in addition to moving towards an acting career.

Former cover stars to have graced the magazine include Christie Brinkley, who appeared on three covers, from 1979 to 1981, Tyra Banks, Carol Alt and Bar Refaeli.
