Each year, the International Space Station (ISS) Research and Development (R&D) Conference, held in coordination with the ISS U.S. National Laboratory, NASA, and the American Astronautical Society, highlights individuals who have pushed the boundaries of space-based research through the presentation of research awards. This week, we are spotlighting awardees in the category of “compelling results.” Today’s spotlight is on Dr. Mohammad Kassemi of Case Western Reserve, for compelling results in the field of technology development and demonstration.
Find out about new research opportunities onboard the ISS National Laboratory, including recent Requests for Proposals in the areas of Advanced Materials and Industrial Biomedicine. See how you can leverage the unique space environment to advance your research and development.
Dr. Kassemi and his team conducted a series of ground-based and spaceflight experiments that examined tank pressurization and pressure control of volatile fluids when exposed to heat transfer and other environmental conditions in space. The team’s “Zero Boil Off Tank” experiment produced experimental and numerical models that will provide a foundation for the development of low-risk and cost-efficient cryogenic propellant storage systems for future long-duration spaceflight missions.
