Canadian talent and expertise figured prominently on Shuttle Mission STS-77. Canadian Space Agency (CSA) astronaut Marc Garneau celebrated his second flight into space. As well, Canadian scientific experiments onboard Space Shuttle Endeavour were part of the flight: the Commercial Float Zone Furnace (CFZF), the Aquatic Research Facility (ARF), the Nanocrystal Get Away Special nano crystal "get-away special" (NANO-GAS) and the Atlantic Canada thin organic semiconductor (ACTORS). On orbit, Marc Garneau was responsible for the CFZF.
