Stephen Tse, professor and director of outreach in the School of Engineering’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, has waited patiently for years to run a series of experiments involving spherically-symmetrical flames known as “s-Flame” on the International Space Station. “It was a decades-long process to get these experiments to finally run,” he says. “The project was approved around 2002, but many things occurred which cancelled and delayed it. Now, in fall 2019, we finally get to see the experiments begin.”
