Space Station Hosts Crystal Growth Experiments for Students, Testing of Real-Time Approach

American Crystallographic Association (ACA)

Two experiments on the International Space Station examined how different crystal formations can be grown in a microgravity environment. One of the experiments was designed by six prize-winning students from Wisconsin, who were looking to compare growing salt crystals in space to growing crystals on Earth. The other experiment tested new advancements in methods and hardware to direct protein crystal growth by astronauts on the space station. Both experiments will be featured during a session at the 69th ACA meeting, July 20-24.
