Astronaut Jeffrey Williams, Expedition 13 NASA space station science officer and flight engineer, conducts a run of the Pore Formation and Mobility Investigation experiment in the Microgravity Science Glovebox in the Destiny laboratory of the International Space Station. As the sample was processed, a video system allowed scientists working at the Telescience Support Center at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., to watch as bubbles formed and moved around in a transparent modeling material sample. By studying bubble formation in microgravity, scientists will gain insights to improve solidification processing on future space experiments and similar processes on Earth. (NASA/JSC)
