This work has the aim to analyze didactic books of the discipline of Physics of the National Program of the Didactic Book, normally adopted in the 1st year of the High School with regard to the term microgravity. It is common to find spontaneous conceptions about this subject because the explanation given to the microgravity environment involves concepts that need to be worked with a care which is not usually got. As a research strategy, it was adopted the analysis of textbooks because it is understood that they are important tools of the teaching and learning process and, in addition, they complement the content studied in the classroom. In this work, we will deal with the concept of microgravity, spontaneous conceptions and a proposal of an alternative approach to those found in the books researched. According to research on this topic and from a previous analysis of some textbooks, it is possible to say that this subject needs more information to clarify and demystify the idea of zero gravity which is often used in the wrong way. It is hoped that this work contributes to the teaching of Physics as a research alternative to teachers and students of the area, providing subsidies for the discussion around the space sciences.
