In July 1999, we flew three experiments,

1) Bubble interactions with 1,6 hexanediol diacrylate frontal polymerization.

2) A free floating apparatus to investigate miscible fluids.

3) Frontal polymerization of hexyl acrylate, using an apparatus built at Marshall Space Flight Center and flown by Steve Spearman (Project Manager for our project) and Doug Westra.

Pojman lets the apparatus free float during a low g.
