The experiment aimed at the effect of microgravity on the mechanism of combustion and structure formation in powder mixtures and pelleted samples. The specialized equipment was designed and manufactured at ISMAN, TsNIIMASh, and RSC «Energia». Vide recordings and samples will be delivered on the ground for detailed investigation. Experiments were carried out in a specialized apparatus for SHS studies.
