ABSTRACT

Abstract: This project in its present form is the result of the question "Why Astronauts go to Space?" the initial idea was to find out the reason behind the same. After doing some research works finally the conclusion was that the astronauts get microgravity region in space, so that many experimental works may be done there which are not possible on earth due to gravity. Then it was found out what exactly Microgravity is? How and why is it so beneficial that space shuttles are being launched? Then some newly found methods of achieving Microgravity inside the earth's atmosphere have also been researched on. The results were Drop towers, Sounding rockets, Space shuttle and finally Airplane flying in a parabola. This project has some new areas of research included which would lead one to think beyond normal. Such as a unique way of achieving Microgravity on earth.
