ISS Science for Everyone

Science Objectives for Everyone
The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) hosts several Educational Payload Operation (EPO) investigations designed to attract public attention for Japanese manned spaceflight activities. The Try Zero-G for Asia is an EPO consisting of several activities in KIBO, the Japanese experiment module on the International Space Station (ISS). Crew members conduct several small experiments submitted by students in countries in the Asia-Pacific region to demonstrate the effects of microgravity.

Experiment Description

Research Overview
• The Try Zero-G for Asia allows the countries in the Asia-Pacific region the opportunity to interact with ISS crew members as they perform various activities for educational purposes. These activities are meant to help enlighten the general public about microgravity utilization and human spaceflight by way of crew members performing of on-orbit demonstrations showing that microgravity is useful, not only for scientists and engineers, but also for writers, poets, teachers, artists, and others.

Space Applications
The Try Zero-G for Asia investigation includes several student-submitted experiments. A Japanese astronaut in space works with young students in Asian countries on Earth to demonstrate differences in physical phenomena between Earth gravity and microgravity, including classical physics, surface tension, and more.

Earth Applications
Try Zero-G for Asia includes experiments submitted by students in several countries throughout Asia and the South Pacific, connecting them to the International Space Station program. The investigation also produces video that is widely used in media, lectures and other presentations, inspiring young people to become interested in the space program.
