It's Not Zero Gravity!

I've featured a collection of videos looking at how different items behave in microgravity environments. The first video does a good job of explaining the concept of microgravity itself, and corrects the zero gravity misconception. 

Microgravity is fascinating to me.  Being able to push off a wall and fly across a room would be an incredible experience! Knowing me I'd get stuck between walls and have to dog paddle my way to the other side.

If you had access to a microgravity environment, what experiment would you like to run? 

These students won the YouTube Space Lab challenge and travelled to Japan to see a space launch! Seeing a launch is definitely on my bucket list.
