Zeolite Crystal Growth
Zeolite Crystal Growth is a university investigation on the International Space Station (ISS) using 24 liquid mixing tube assemblies that function similar to commercial “glow sticks”. The experiment is later returned to Earth.
The Ohio State University Zeolite Crystal Growth (NanoRacks-OSU-Zeolite)uses a two cube unit box. NanoRacks-OSU-Zeolite is a university Zeolite crystal growth investigation for the International Space Station (ISS) using 24 liquid mixing tube assemblies. The science goals for NanoRacks-OSU-Zeolite are proprietary.
This investigation is a part of a series of investigations to be conducted on board the ISS to provide the foundation for use of the ISS as a National Laboratory following assembly complete.
The long-term goal of this project is to enhance technological, industrial, and educational growth for the benefit of people on Earth.
The experiment is activated by flexing the liquid mixing containers. The experiment is later returned to Earth.
