Abstract

Throughout this text in about all chapters already some extended discussions about the presented results are given. Thus, at the end of the complete text only a short summary and general interpretation is given mainly to bring together results from different experimental sections. Additionally, something like an outlook for future experiments is given at some places. Especially according to technological aspects of this text, mainly the microgravity platforms, this necessarily includes highly political speculations about where manned space flight could go, and whether it is necessary at all.
