Experiments for Spacelab Flight



The National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA) and the European Space Agency (ESA) have selected 37 scientific experiments to be conducted on the first flight of Spacelab, scheduled for launch aboard the space shuttle in late 1982.

The experiments fall into five broad categories: atmospheric physics and earth observations, space plasma physics, material sciences and technology, astronomy and period. (Note: Seismograms can be very complicated, and ultimately, the selection of a particular measurement must be left to the observer's experience).
