OPM: Science

On these pages you will find the list of samples flown on Mir. For more information about data and results, please contact AZ Technology. Note that paints produced by AZ Technology are available for purchase.

*Note: Z-93 is no longer produced, but AZ Technology produces a space-tested version, AZ-93.

Flight Samples:
The flight samples were exposed to the Mir induced and natural environments. Once a week, seventy-two samples were rotated under the measurement apertures of the three instruments for characterization. The remaining twenty-six samples are characterized by pre- and post-tests only. Samples were chosen through an open sample selection process from among 228 samples submitted by 19 organizations. The flight sample selections are listed below.
