The competition challenges young students’ teams of 2-4 people (maximum) between the ages of 18-35 to submit proposals for experiments to be conducted in a zero-G environment.

Flights with a certified aerobatic plane will be conducted at Sabadell Airport (30 minutes drive from Barcelona, Spain) and media will be present to cover the event. Diverse, international and intercultural teams are most welcome. The projects will be assessed by their: suitability, scientific merit, safety, mentor endorsement, international and diversity perspective; and your outreach planning.
The competition will be divided in three phases:
- Submit your experiment – Deadline: June 30th 2021
- Selection (by ESA Academy experts): June-September 2021
- ZeroG Flight of the Experiment: Fall 2021
