Asian Try Zero-G 2023 is an exciting ‘out of this world’ competition where students are able to propose an experiment or exercise that could be selected to be conducted by JAXA astronauts in the Kibo module of the International Space Station.
The Asian Try Zero-G competition has been created by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to promote crewed space experiment activities aboard Kibo. It is open to youth and young scientists and engineers who have citizenship of any countries which have Kibo – ABC Member Agency.
Students are asked to design and submit proposals for simple microgravity experiments or exercises that can be easily performed onboard the ISS.
Submitted proposals will be reviewed by a distinguished panel of space professionals. Once chosen, the students will be guided in preparing their activity for launch.
The experiments and exercises will be performed by JAXA astronauts in the Kibo module on the International Space Station. The demonstration of the space activities will be broadcast live and transmitted to JAXA’s ground station at Tsukuba Space Center, Japan.
One Giant Leap Australia Foundation is honoured to be offering the ATZG 2023 opportunity to Australian students.
