Microgravity 2018-2019

Microgravity Logo

The Boise State Microgravity Undergraduate Research Team participates in NASA’s Micro-g NExT program. The program requires students to design, build, and test a tool for current space exploration challenges. If accepted into the program, the team will travel to the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL) at the Johnson Space Center to test their tool in front of NASA engineers.

Tool Design

The team will soon be choosing which challenge to work on and begin the brainstorming and prototyping processes. Updates will be provided throughout the project through the team’s Facebook page, the Instagram page (links on the left), and under the Team Updates page.


The Microgravity Team will be participating in multiple educational outreach events throughout the year. These events are intended to inspire K-12 students throughout the community about STEM careers and opportunities, current NASA missions and goals, and space exploration in general. Updates from every event can be found under the Outreach page.
