Understanding fluid slosh in a microgravity environment has the potential to make liquid-fueled spacecraft more effective. The SPHERES-Slosh Experiment gathers benchmarking data that can be used to validate computational fluid dynamics models for microgravity environments. This thesis discusses the design of the SSE hardware and the control theory used on the International Space Station during test sessions. This thesis proposes future control theory and design work.
