Sunday, March 2, 2014
1:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
The purpose of this Workshop is to allow members of the APS, and in particular, students and post-docs, to gain some familiarity with the interesting gravity-dependent phenomena that have been discovered from physical sciences research carried out on the International Space Station (ISS). The speakers will cover recent results from experiments in fluid physics, complex fluids and combustion science.
The Workshop will provide a better understanding of existing and planned ISS research capabilities and current funding opportunities. Attendees will have an opportunity to interact with NASA flight experiment Principal Investigators and ISS Program Office staff in a panel discussion at the conclusion of the session. A noteworthy participant will be an ISS astronaut with experience in operating Physical Sciences experiments on the ISS.
