17 year old Amir Abdou, a year 13 student at the Jumeirah English Speaking School,Dubai (JESS) has won a trip to Florida to experience the simulation of a space flight. He is one of the 20 UAE students who won the  Zero Gravity Competition announced by Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC). The applicants had to answer a few questions and also submit a proposal on which experiment they would like to conduct while on board the parabolic flights.

Abdou, who wants to be a quantum physicist, would like to test different liquids to know how viscosity is affected in zero gravity and understand the kind of changes the liquids will go through on earth’s gravity as well as in space.
