  • With the support of pHD students in the MIT astrophysics department, students will design and propose their own experiments for microgravity on board a Zero-G flight. 
  • Actual astronauts will review the top 5 experiments and select one final experiment to fly on the MIT chartered Zero-G parabolic flight in May. 
  • The whole thing will be filmed in Virtual Reality and shared with the entire class.
