Abstract:

An account is given of the progress made in an investigation of the behavior of a liquid-gas mixture in a zero-g field. An experiment unit was flown on an Atlas re-entry nosecone test vehicle. The experiment unit housed a movie camera, placed so as to observe and record the interaction of gas and water contained in a plastic cube during the 25-minute near-zero-g conditions present on an ICBM flight. Temperature and pressure changes were also recorded. Although the flight met most of the vehicle test objectives, the nosecone was not recovered from the ocean as planned. Consequently the film data from the zero-g experiment were lost and only the telemetered data were available for analysis. Author
