Possible experiments in space on ceramics, composites and inorganic glasses are listed. Advantages in processing these materials under microgravity conditions, anticipated effects and likely problems are discussed. Theoretical conclusions and experimental results to date are reviewed. It is suggested that experiments on metallic glasses in space could prove to be rewarding.
