N Abstract EW glass compositions should result from space processing. To make a glass, a liquid must be cooled rapidly enough to prevent nucleation of crystals and the elimination of container walls, a common source of nucleation, should lead to new glass-forming compositions. Rapid heat transfer is important in glass forming; the special conditions of heat transfer in space processing must be carefully controlled for successful melting of easily crystallized glasses. Fining and homogenization are important problems in making glasses, but they present no special problems for glass melting in space.
