    It's still referred as floating. Astronauts float around in space because there is no gravity in space. Everyone knows that the farther you get from Earth, the less the gravitational force is.

    You have a point. Floating has always meant the physical state where a body is held in suspension by buoyancy force. On the ISS the astronauts are not held in suspension by the meager lift of the atm in the space station. So they are really not floating.

    They are hovering above the floor of the ISS.

    Zero gravity is a common term

    you can float in a pool of water, and there is plenty of gravity.

    microgravity is one term that is used.
