STS-52 astronauts Bill Shepherd and Mike Baker went through extensive training with Boeing scientists to learn how to work the CVTE equipment.
The CVTE system is in a rack the size of a telephone booth, installed in Columbia's mid-deck galley area.
CVTE will attempt to grow large, uniform crystals from a cadmium telluride compound using a process called vapor transport.
The compound is a solid, sealed in a glass tube inside the CVTE furnace, where it is heated to 850 degrees Celsius," explained CVTE chief scientist Bob Ruggeri.
