BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. -

Supermodel Kate Upton floated in space for her 'Sports Illustrated' photo shoot while representing the Space Coast.

The 21-year-old model donned a bikini for her photo shoot with Zero Gravity Corp. ZERO-G, based in Cape Canaveral, for Sports Illustrated’s 50th swimsuit issue, Local 6 news partner Florida Today reports.

The photos, which a news release states were taken in spring 2013, show Upton floating in mid-air, similar to astronauts floating in zero gravity.

Upton, who attended Holy Trinity in Melbourne, flew to Titusville for the photo shoot and the issue is on newsstands now.
