How Gravity Affects Molecules

This NASA video segment highlights NASA’s reduced gravity program. The reduced gravity program runs experiments in reduced gravity environments and simulated weightlessness. An expert provides details of an experiment to create unique materials using polymerization techniques. This segment also explains polymers, monomers, and several types of convection. Slopes and ratios help explain a relationship between gravity and convection.
