Live Communication with International Space Station (ISS) 2013 is one of the National Planetarium annual program began in 2007. The program is organized to inspire younger generation in space science. In addition, this program also develops skills in scientific research and concepts learning as well as expose to space technology.
Murid-murid sekolah di peringkat rendah dan menengah kini berpeluang untuk menjadi saintis muda angkasa dengan menyertai Pertandingan Malaysia Space Seeds 2013 (MASS2013) anjuran Agensi Angkasa Negara (ANGKASA) dengan kerjasama Institut Penyelidikan dan Kemajuan Pertanian Malaysia (MARDI), Kementerian Pelajaran Malaysia (KPM) dan National Seeds Association of Malaysia (NSAM).
Malaysia has pioneered the Near Equatorial Orbit (NEqO) as a niche orbit in our space program. Cabinet has approved the NEqO satellite constellation development in 2005, with RazakSAT being the first one, successfully developed and launched in 2009. The single biggest advantage to Malaysia on NEqO is the higher revisit of satellites, as compared to other orbits, hence increasing the potential use for various monitoring and surveillance applications.
On behalf of the ISDE Organizing Committee, we are pleased to invite you to Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia for ISDE 2013. This will be the 8th annual ISDE symposium and will continue the excellent tradition of gathering world-class researchers, academia and industries engaged in the fields of geospatial science and technology to provide a brand new opportunity to share their ideas and insights on how we share knowledge and act together globally.
The Rocket Launching Technology Challenge (PTPR) is an annual water rocket science education program organized by the National Space Agency (ANGKASA) in collaboration with the Division of Co-curriculum and Arts, the Ministry of Education and the University of Malaya. The water rocket competition has entered its 11th year since it was first introduced as a pilot project in 2003. It is an advanced science education program for supporting conventional secondary school curriculum in the country.
School students grades 4 and 5 will have the opportunity to become young scientists by participating in a Space Weather Innovation Competition organised by the National Space Agency (ANGKASA) in collaboration with the Space Science Institute National University of Malaysia (UKM Angkasa).

Fly your experiment in microgravity? ANGKASA is collaborating with Japan in flying microgravity experiments on board via parabolic flight which is hosted by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) every year since 2007. For year 2013, this program is held in conjunction with “Tahun Sains dan Gerakan Inovasi Nasional (SGI) 2013” to promote greater awareness on the utilization of space environment in developing capacity building for future space related activities. Parabolic flight is a cheaper way to emulate microgravity environment using a special airplane and flight paths in order to conduct microgravity experiments without launching into outer space.
