Asian Try Zero-G is a unique program that allows students, young scientists and engineers to propose simple space experiments for JAXA astronauts to demonstrate the difference in the 0-G (i.e. in the International Space Station, ISS) and 1-G (i.e. on the ground) environments for educational purposes. Click here for some of the past Asian Try Zero-G experiments. The demonstration of the space experiments in ISS will be recorded by high-definition video camera, downlink to Earth, edit and use to support education resources for educators. This program highlights the value of microgravity not only to young scientists and engineers but also educators, students as well as public. Asian Try Zero-G brings space closer to young people and inspires young generation the important of space exploration.
National Planetarium Kuala Lumpur and Asian Beneficial Collaboration through "Kibo" Utilization (Kibo-ABC) would like to invite your ideas for the simple space experiment to the 6th "Asian Try Zero-G 2017-2018" program to be conducted in the International Space Station (ISS)/Kibo. The next member of the JAXA ISS crew, astronaut Norishige Kanai, will be assigned for this mission during his stay in the Japanese experiment module "Kibo". Kibo-ABC expects unique, novel and/or informative ideas that have never been done in ISS/Kibo.
