(24 Jan. 2013) --- NASA astronaut Kevin Ford, Expedition 34 commander, works with the InSPACE-3 hardware inside the Microgravity Science Glovebox (MSG) in the Destiny laboratory of the International Space Station. InSPACE-3 applies different magnetic fields to vials of colloids, or liquids with microscopic particles, and observes how fluids can behave like a solid. Results may improve the strength and design of materials for stronger buildings and bridges. Credit: NASA
