The Barcelona Zero-G Aerobatics Challenge for the Space Generation
The competition challenges teams of 2-3 people (maximum) between the ages of 18-35 in the space sector to submit proposals for experiments to be conducted in a zero-G environment. The top three teams with the best proposals will actually get to fly in zero-G to test their experiments. Flights will be conducted at the Sabadell Airport (30 minutes drive from Barcelona, Spain) and media will be present to cover the event. Interdisciplinary, international and intercultural teams are most welcome. An ISU Workshop during SSP11 may take place on this challenge.
