Paper Abstract

In the paper we consider the sense of making crystal growth from solution experiments on board space laboratories. Based on our experimental data and experiences connected with preparing a facility for a space laboratory we analyze the possibility of replacing space experiments by cheaper ground-based studies and some technical problems appearing during the preparation of the apparatus for space experiments. In the end we present construction and experimental capabilities of the crystal growth from a solution facility for microgravity conditions research which is built in the Institute of Physics, Technical University of Lodz.
