OnDemand Webinar Series

In-Space Production Applications: Advanced Materials and Manufacturing on the International Space Station

Mar 17, 2021 12:00pm ‐ Mar 17, 2021 1:00pm



The International Space Station (ISS) U.S. National Laboratory enables long-term, iterative studies within the unique, microgravity environment inside the ISS, including in-space materials research in the areas of advanced or exotic materials production. Access to persistent microgravity opens new opportunities for novel materials manufacturing, including unique microstructures, larger crystal growth, and potentially increased homogeneity. Please join us for a discussion of new research opportunities and current case studies of in-space production of advanced materials.

During this webinar, more questions were asked than time allowed for responses.  The speakers have responded to those questions in written form, and those responses are available here.

Talk Presentations:

  • Solidification of High Quality Magnesium Alloys in Microgravity
    Prashant Kumta, University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering and School of Dental Medicine
    Talk begins at 12:21
  • Melt and Vapor Growth in the Solidification Using a Baffle in Sealed Ampoules (SUBSA) Furnace
