CASIS and Marvel Entertainment announce the Guardians of the Galaxy Space Station Challenge for American students ages 13-18 to submit microgravity flight experiment concepts that could be conducted on the International Space Station (ISS) U.S. National Laboratory. The competition is now open for submissions through January 31, 2018! Visit the official website to learn more and submit an entry.
Students are encouraged to develop flight proposals based on the attributes of two superheroes: Groot, representing life science and regeneration, and Rocket, representing technology development and materials science.
Two winning concepts will be developed into flight-ready experiments and launch to the ISS in 2018 as part of an official ISS National Lab investigation.
