"Why do people aim for the universe?" In order to challenge this question, I will report on the art experiment in the space station JAXA JEM "KIBO" which was conducted from 2008. Then, considering that the zero gravity environment and the view point from outside of the Earth create a new view of the world based on the experience of astronauts and verification of huge remnants such as pyramids. I will also introduce the student 's zero gravity flight experiment by aircraft.
