Paper Abstract

A Ronchi system has been designed and built into the STDCE-2 flight hardware to measure deformations of an oil free surface in microgravity under the influence of localized heating. The system design conforms to packaging and shuttle constraints and satisfies all Science requirements. During End-to-End testing, the system demonstrated its value in providing valuable science data about the physics of the experiment.
