NASA Researchers build on the work of those who have gone before. New experiments intersect with published research; current investigations expand the scope of earlier work; new tests verify and challenge old results. And so it goes with all research, including microgravity flame studies. NASA engineers, academic researchers and scientists of all stripes have built on past experiments and findings to understand the fundamentals of combustion, fire sensing and fire suppression both on...

Space Fire Makes Spherical Cool Flames

[ Watch the video "Strange Flames On The International Space Station" ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) analyzed the behavior of flames in space, including how and why they form little "spheres." Thousands of chemical reactions take place simultaneously within a flame. Hydrocrabon molecules from the wick are vaporized and cracked apart by heat, and they combine with oxygen to produce light, heat, carbon...
