This volume draws together information from a wide number of differing subfields viewed from the common standpoint of microgravity transport science, especially in the areas of protein crystal growth and biotransport phenomena. The plans for an international space station, long-distance space travel (perhaps to Mars), and the potential for commercial production of ultra pure silicon or polymer crystals make these topics of current relevance. The program varies among topics such as transport in biological systems (relevant to bone loss associated with long-duration space travel), acoustic levitation, electromagnetic phenomena, crystal growth, protein crystallization, and boiling.
