    Currently, flight experiments are being performed exclusively on the Space Shuttle. For the future, a cryogenic Space Station facility is being developed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and industrial partners to support the microgravity needs of the international scientific community. algorithms and material science. First sent to the station in , these satellites have been employed in a dozen different investigations. The Dragon brings back hardware from two recent experiments that examined the behavior of fluids in microgravity, SPHERES Tether Slosh and SPHERES-Slosh. From microgravity lab to manufacturing facility.

    Microgravity, confinement, isolation, and immobilization are just some of the features astronauts have to cope with during space missions. Consequently, long-duration space travel can have. As we increase utilization of ISS as a National Laboratory, now is the time for investigators to propose new research and to make discoveries. unveiling new knowledge about nature that could not be defined using traditional approaches on Earth.

    The general goal of the programs within NASA's Microgravity Research Division (MRD) is to conduct basic and applied research under microgravity conditions ( g) that will further our understanding of fundamental physical, chemical, and biological ically, the five main areas of research within the MRD are biotechnology, combustion science, fluid physics, fundamental physics.   As a global endeavor, people from 19 countries have visited the unique microgravity laboratory that has hosted more than 3, research and educational investigations from researchers in countries. The station is a critical testbed for NASA to understand and overcome the challenges of long-duration spaceflight.

The reflight of the First Microgravity Science Laboratory (MSL-1) on STS required an innovative approach to Space Shuttle payload ground processing. Ground processing time for the Spacelab Module, which served as the laboratory for MSL-1 experiments, was reduced by seventy-five percent.

In AugustNASA and ESRO (now European Space Agency or ESA) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to build a science laboratory for use on Space Shuttle flights.

The flow of fluids and movement of solids are also affected by the microgravity. STS was a NASA Space Shuttle mission flown by was a science research mission that achieved orbit successfully, but the planned duration was a failure due to a technical problem with a fuel cell that resulted in the abort of the 15 day duration.

The Material Science Laboratory Electromagnetic Levitator (MSL-EML) on board the Columbus Laboratory is a science facility that can be used to study the melting and solidification properties of various materials. The Fluid Science Laboratory (FSL) is used to study the behavior of liquids in microgravity.

The experimental measurements of D S in liquid Sn were made in the MSL (The First Microgravity Space Laboratory) in the flight of the space shuttle ‘Columbia’ (STS- 94) in The measurements were made in the temperature range from to K by the long capillary method with a graphite cell, as shown in Fig.

The chief science legacy of NASA's space shuttle program may be the International Space Station, the gigantic orbiting lab that shuttle missions helped build over the past 13 years.
