    Experiment Description

    Research Overview

    • Foam Casting and Utilization in Space (FOCUS) will demostrate a new technology to produce nanoparticle stabilized foams on the International Space Station.


    • FOCUS will be performed in the Biological Laboratory (BioLab) of Columbus, to utilize the video camera. This investigation requires minimal crew time beyond activation and deactivation.

    Description
    To demonstrate a new technology to produce nanoparticle stabilized foams under microgravity conditions. To collect scientific data on the evolution and stability of such foams under microgravity conditions. To develop a computation tools for ground-based applications.
