    Johnson Space Center's Chamber I is a high-vacuum pumping station normally configured with a bell jar. The vacuum system consists of a mechanical and an oil diffusion pump. Electrical heaters are used if thermal effects are required. Tests in this chamber have included studies of vacuum gauges, space suit water sublimators, materials, outgassing, degradation of materials, and determination of the survival lifetime of spores under high-vacuum conditions.
