A holographic recording system will be flown on the NASA Space Shuttle (SL-3 mission) to record fluid phenomena under low-zero gravity conditions; namely, solution growth of crystals and fluid convection. A 25 milliwatt helium neon laser will be the illuminator for two orthogonal hologram recorders and a real time schlieren monitor. The holograms will be re-recorded on S0-253 films vacuum clamped to optical flats. Processing and analysis of the holographic records will all be after the Shuttle's return.
