MISTE Team Evaluates New Flight Cryovalve

The MISTE team, in collaboration with Mission Research Corporation (MRC), has developed a new prototype small cryovalve for use in low temperature experiments in space. The valve, which is based on the technology of MRC's larger commercial flight cryovalve, is planned to be used in the MISTE flight experiment and is expected to be useful for many future ground-based and flight cryogenic experiments. Current test results on the valve were recently presented in a paper titled "Progress on a Small Multi-Cycling Cryogenic Fluid Flow Valve" at the 2001 Space Cryogenics Workshop in Milwaukee.
