Abstract:

IN THE INVESTIGATION OF THE BEHAVIOR OF A LIQUID-GAS MIXTURE IN A ZERO-G FIELD, AN EXPERIMENT UNIT WAS INSTALLED IN AN Atlas reentry nosecone test vehicle. The experiment unit houses 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 are also recorded. Author
