Research Description: Our research is related to the microgravity fluid science. Fluid instability induced in interfacial phenomena such as Marangoni convection, liquid droplet dynamics and Faraday instability strongly depend on the earth gravity. Our research objectives are to reveal the phenomena and to clarify the instability mechanisms. Theoretical, numerical and experimental works are carrying out to achieve the our scientific goal. The International Space Station is utilized to perform our microgravity experiment.
