Researchers from University of California-Santa Barbara are sending an investigation to the ISS National Lab that will evaluate forces between particles that cluster together such as sediments of quartz and clay particles, which could play an important role in technological efforts related to deep sea hydrocarbon drilling and sequestration. This research is supported through a joint CASIS and National Science Foundation partnership.
