The selection area has 2 categories: Category 1 for those under 18 years old, and Category 2 for young scientists and engineers up to 27 years old. The next member of the JAXA ISS crew, astronaut Norishige Kanai, will be assigned for this mission for the Japanese experiment module "Kibo" during his stay. Kibo-ABC expects unique, novel and/or informative ideas that have never been done in ISS/Kibo.
