    • Abstract


      This paper reviews possible experiments on adhesion that can be carried out in a space lab environment. After introducing the basic concepts of adhesion physics, the proposed European experiment on surface energy measurement by dynamic methods in space environment is discussed and reviewed. It is concluded that as of now more studies on adhesion in terrestrial environment are desirable than space experiments.
