NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 11: (STORY NY POST) Sports Illustrated has taken Kate Upton to a place few have gone before — space. We’re told the voluptuous blond model, who graced the cover of SI’s 2012 and 2013 Swimsuit issues, was photographed in a bikini in “zero gravity space” for this year’s 50th anniversary issue.<br />
Sources tell us Upton was shot in a zero-gravity chamber in a silver swimsuit with weightless ample bosom and big hair that made her “look like something out of ‘Barbarella.’ ”<br />
Last year, when Upton was photographed for SI in Antarctica, Jimmy Fallon joked with the beauty that her next cover should be shot in space. “Think about this; there’s no gravity,” he quipped.<br />
We also hear SI has photographed a series of legends to celebrate the issue’s 50th anniversary — Christie Brinkley, who appeared on three covers, from 1979 to 1981, and Tyra Banks, Carol Alt and Bar Refaeli.<br />
It’s unclear who will be 2014’s cover star, as we’re told editors are still sifting through images of babes in bikinis to make a final decision. The issue hits newsstands Feb. 11. SI declined to comment on January 11, 2014 in New York City.  (Photo By Storms Media Group)   <br />
