Japanese Astronaut performs space experiments
proposed by the students in the Asia-Pacific region.

With the goal of promoting manned space experiment activities aboard Kibo, a Japanese astronaut performs selected experiments covering themes proposed by youth in the Asia-Pacific region.

Kibo-ABC members are invited to submit proposals for experiments. Member agencies will work on the screening of proposals according to selection method, and this could develop the skills needed for feasibility studies of Kibo experiments. After feasibility assessments by JAXA, the final selection of experiment themes will be determined by member agencies.
