National Space Agency (ANGKASA) is proudly present to you a brand New program coming New Year 2011. This program is known as “Ideas for Try Zero G in Space”. The program is actually the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) educational program in the International Space Station (ISS). The purpose of this program is to show the difference of science phenomenon between 0G (in ISS) and 1G (on Earth) for educational purpose. Astronaut who stay in ISS will demonstrate the educational activity according to the experimental procedure proposed by teachers or students and it will be recorded by the High Definition video camera. The coming next Ideas for Try Zero G in Space experiments will be attempted by astronaut Furukawa during his long stay mission in Japanese experiment module, KIBO on the ISS around March 2011. Therefore ANGKASA & JAXA are working together to look for ideas from you!

How? Well, it’s easy, all you have to do is to come up with an idea (or perhaps more ideas) of the basic science experiment with some simple and easy understand explanation on its procedure as well as the expected outcome. The experiment must be simple, easy to understand by children and easy to be carried out by Japanese Astronaut Furukawa during his next long stay mission in Japanese experiment module, Kibo on the ISS. Then send us you ideas by filling up the application form (attach together with this email) and send it (via postal mail, email, fax or website) to ANGKASA by 25 January 2011 (Tuesday) before 5pm. I know time is too short but why not give it a try, who knows your ideas maybe selected for next year “Ideas for Try Zero G in Space”.

More details about this program can be found in “Ideas for Try Zero G in Space.pdf”. Please be informed that we are currently working on updating our website for the details information of this program with some useful links to the experimental videos recorded previously by JAXA. So stay tune and check up our website frequently for the next two or three to get more inspiration to create your own unique and novel ideas.

Please do not hesitate to contact me (lau@angkasa.gov.my) or my colleagues Mr. Jong Tze Kian (ltkjong@angkasa.gov.my) or Ms Nur’ Fazilah (fazilah@angkasa.gov.my) if you have any queries.

Thank you for your attention.
