ASIAN TRY ZERO-G
Asian Try Zero-G is a competition created by Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) that invites youths and young scientists/engineers from the Asia-Pacific region to design and submit proposals for simple microgravity experiments which are novel and creative.
Selected proposals will be performed by JAXA astronauts onboard the Japanese Experiment Module “KIBO” on the International Space Station. The demonstration of the space experiments will be broadcasted live and transmitted to JAXA’s ground station at Tsukuba Space Center, Japan.
Since 2011, over 150 proposals have been submitted from countries e.g. Singapore, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Bangladesh, Australia.
- Encourage youths to develop an interest in space and space exploration
- Highlight the value of microgravity
- Promote the understanding and utilization of Japanese Experiment Module “KIBO” on the International Space Station
- Inspire youths to come up with novel space experiments
Asian Try Zero-G 2018:
NUS High School
To observe the reaction of the gyroscope when pressing it in one direction, while altering the center of gravity with an additional weight, and to also observe the movement of the Tippe Top.
Asian Try Zero-G 2016:
THE FLYING PAPER PLANE
Hillgrove Secondary School
Throwing paper planes with some variations of aileron, rudder, in ISS/Kibo to observe how they fly in the absence of gravity.
- Schematic Model
- Mathematical & Theoretical Assumptions (Only Category 2)
- Verification Method
- Detailed procedure and estimated crew time require for experiment
- Tools required
- Research paper summarizing experiment and results (Only Category 2, optional)
*Do note that proposals identical to those submitted in the previous years will be rejected.
