The SODI-DCMIX2 experiment aims to study the diffusion coefficients of ternary fluid mixtures samples in a microgravity environment. In specific, in different petroleum field samples and refine petroleum reservoir models, to help lead to more efficient extraction of oil resources. Development and validation of the on-board procedures and automatic scripts, planning of the on-board activities, remote control and monitoring of the payload, troubleshooting of anomalies in a quick and agile way, data retrieval and dissemination to the scientific community, have been some of the tasks carried on by ...
