RPI Professor Joel Plawsky sent two of his experiments to the International Space Station, last week.

Plawsky is the department head of the Chemical and Biological Engineering Department.

The first experiment sees how long it takes to move heat from one end to another of a heat pipe. The other experiment is about boiling water and condensation.
