Fire in ZERO-G!!

Fire in ZERO-G!!

In a zero-g plane I experimented with flames and slinkies with surprising results.

The zero-g plane allows for a lot of experiments to be conducted without the expense of getting equipment into orbit. Apparently 80% of microgravity research can be performed in a zero-gravity plane, which is much cheaper than going to space. The flame from the lighter seemed much lazier in zero-g because without weight there is no buoyant force and therefore no convection. This makes the process of combustion more challenging because it’s difficult for oxygen to reach the fuel.

    Is standing at 1.8G the same as carrying a barbell that weighs .8x as much as you on your back?
