- ICE (Internal Combustion Experiment) is the characterization and modelling of biofuels in microgravity to create an ideal burning reference for earth-used combustion chambers optimization.
- Diapason is an instrument to capture air nanoparticles to obtain information on the microparticles on board the air of the International Space Station. Diapason works on the principle of thermoforesis, that can be tuned to work in standard earth-gravity conditions.
Both the experiments were carried on by the Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano in his “Volare” mission. The data obtained in ICE are currently being studied by the CNR-IMM to prepare a second round whose feasibility will be evaluated together wits ASI and NASA.
