    The original finding aid described this as: Description: Photographic documentation of Solid Surface Combustion Experiment (SSCE) equipment stored on the Space Shuttle Discovery's middeck during STS-64. The SSCE was designed to supply information on flame spread over solid fuel surfaces in the reduced-gravity environment of space by measureing the rate of spreading, the solid-phase temperature, and the gas-phase temperature of flames spreading over rectangular fuel beds in low gravity. Includes views of Pilot Blaine Hammond with the SSCE equipment (012, 014-015).
