Try Zero G is a program run by the Japanese Space Agency (JAXA), which encourages young people to consider the impact gravity has on objects - and how experiments may differ when performed under microgravity conditions.


Broad goals:

  • Design an experiment that can be conducted on the International Space Station
  • Must use every day materials that already exist on the station (e.g. no items are being flown up especially for it)
  • Cannot use materials that may be hazardous to astronauts or equipment.


If your experiment is selected, it will be performed by Japanese astronaut Takuya Onishi, and high-definition video of the experiment made available.


See the following video for an example of what you could suggest:



We're still awaiting final details, and will publish these as soon as we have them - but for information on past challenges, see the following links:
