Zero Gravity

This engaging documentary follows a diverse group of middle-school students from San Jose, CA, who compete in a nationwide tournament to code satellites aboard the International Space Station. We are introduced to three young students Adrien, Advik, and Carol, and their first-time coach, Tanner. They all joined the Zero Robotics competition for very different reasons and must learn to work together as a team to achieve the impossible together. We get to know them a little better as they each take an intimate and personal journey to space and as their team grows from amateur coders to representing California in the ISS Finals Tournament — the culmination of a summer-long adventure that sees their incredible accomplishment performed by astronauts in orbit.

The competition in Zero Gravity is called Zero Robotics and is run by the MIT Space Systems Laboratory in collaboration with NASA and CASIS, and their goal is to utilize the International Space Station for student experiments in zero gravity in support of real-world problems facing space scientists today.
