Abstract:Simon Ostrach is an internationally known scientist and pioneer in the fields of buoyancy-driven flows and microgravity science. Dr. Ostrach is highly regarded for his work as principal investigator on the Surface-Tension Driven Convection Experiments (STDCE), which were conducted on two NASA Spacelab missions, United States Microgravity Laboratories 1 (June 25-July 9, 1992) and 2 (October 20-November 5, 1995). The STDCE experiments explored thermal convection phenomena of liquids under microgravity conditions.
