Abstract

The second flight of microgravity experiment system using a free fall capsule from a high altitude balloon was conducted in May 2007. Using a drag free control, around 10-4G gravity conditions were obtained for 30 seconds. Results of a combustion experiment with Japanese sparker conducted inside the microgravity experimental unit were also reported.
