 Albert Sacco Jr.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
A professor and chair of chemical engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Sacco's mission aboard the shuttle was to utilize the low-gravity environment of space to conduct sophisticated experiments in materials science, fluid physics, biotechnology and combustion science.
Sacco's flight followed two years of intensive physical and intellectual preparation at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Houston, and marked the attainment of a dream he had held since high school.
Sacco won the Admiral Earl Award in 1984 for meritorious contributions in applied catalysis and adsorbent deactivation and was awarded a National Science Foundation Young Faculty Initiative Grant in 1978.

"Our experiments in space have shown that larger and better quality crystals can be grown in microgravity," said Dr. Albert Sacco Jr., director of the Center for Advanced Microgravity Materials Processing.
Sacco says improving the structure of zeolite crystals should lead to a greater gasoline yield from every barrel of oil.
One percent more gasoline from every U.S. barrel of oil is equal to approximately $400 million in savings a year.

The most covered trial of the decade, mainly because of the incredible clumsiness in how the murder was committed with obvious evidence left everywhere, a double indemnity insurance policy had been taken out, etc., it was a sensational display of histrionics, sexual innuendo and dramatic, conflicting testimony.
The deal is thought to be a win-win situation, allowing developers to profit from the oil while setting aside part of it in reserve for naval emergencies.
