(January 9, 1996) The first episode of Liftoff to Learning focuses on four scientific disciplines in microgravity studies: fluid physics, materials science, biotechnology, and combustion. Experiments within these disciplines explore how the effects of buoyancy-driven convection and sedimentation, seen in ground-based laboratories, are diminished in space, allowing scientists to expand their knowledge in these areas. “Microgravity” describes the restrictions that gravity imposes on...
