The Kibo-ABC program or Asian Beneficial Collaboration through Kibo Utilization was established by the Space Frontier Working Group (SFWG) of the Asia-Pacific Regional Space Agency Forum (APRSAF) to promote the utilization and share the value of the Japanese Experiment Module “Kibo”, enhance the capacity of participating organizations, and foster collaborative projects between Japan and Kibo-ABC member countries.

Asian Try Zero-G is one of the activities of the Kibo-ABC program that aims to expand the use of the Kibo module on the International Space Station (ISS) by conducting selected experiments from the Asia Pacific region.

Through its Kibo-ABC member organizations, the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) invites the youth to participate in this activity.
