    Microgravity Research Environment Microgravity is a useful research environment because it reduces the effect gravity has on convection and sedimentation. These processes affect fluids and the way materials solidify. Microgravity provides a new research environment so scientists can study a wide range of phenomena. The Zero Gravity Research Facility is a vertical vacuum chamber used for microgravity experiments. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in The facility uses vertical drop tests in a vacuum chamber to investigate the behavior of components, systems, liquids, gases, and combustion in Agency executive: Janet L. Kavandi, director.   NASA Glenn Research Center conducted a cooperative program with the Russian Space Agency Keldysh Research Center, with technical support provided by NASA Johnson Space Center White Sands Test Facility, to investigate polymer combustion in ventilated microgravity in a small combustion tunnel operated on the Orbital Station Mir. It was found that Cited by: 6.
