Description: Candid views of Mission Specialist Janice Voss in the SPACEHAB with the Zeoliite Crystal Growth experiment.

Zeolite crystals, because of their unique three dimensional structure, are used as filter elements and catalysts in a variety of medical and industrial applications but are hard to produce in an Earth gravity environment.
