Student teams from Malaysia and Thailand performed their experiment aboard a jet performing parabolic manuvers.

They flew on March 26th and 27th from Nagoya airport and completed all of their procedures as planned.

They will analyze the data obtained and are expected to make excellent reports on their scientific and technical findings as well as on their extraordinary experiences.

The program was jointly sponsored by JAXA, National Space Agency of Malaysia and National Science and Technology Development Agency of Thailand.
