Uncle John's NASA SHERE project

My brother John sent a link to this video of one of the projects he works on. He says, "Here's a link to an excellent video Mike Fossum made of SHERE II (one the experiments I designed) during our first science runs on Monday.  It has been posted to the NASA web site, and it really shows off SHERE well!"

Astronaut Mike Fossum With SHERE

Flight Engineer Mike Fossum aboard the International Space Station takes a moment to demonstrate the Shear History Extensional Rheology Experiment. Known as SHERE, the experiment investigates the effect of rotation on the stress and strain response of a polymer fluid being stretched in microgravity. SHERE provides information that is critical for the evolution of containerless processing, an important operation for fabrication of parts used on future exploration missions.
