this is really cool. the effects of water a 0 gravity. Imagine the effects of the human body in a long term effect; being made mostly out of water. anyone ever find videos of fire at 0 gravity?

That's a good question, dvd.

I found a micro gravity video, International Space University - Drop Tower Experiment 1 which is interesting.

It seems that the flame (from a candle) morphs into a ball much like water.

Also this,

Yes, can candle can burn in zero gravity. However, the flame is quite a bit different. Fire behaves differently in space and microgravity than on Earth.
A microgravity flame forms a sphere surrounding the wick. Diffusion feeds the flame with oxygen and allows carbon dioxide to move away from the point of combustion, so the rate of burning is slowed. The flame of a candle burned in microgravity is an almost invisible blue color (video cameras on Mir could not detect the blue color). Experiments on Skylab and Mir indicate the temperature of the flame is too low for the yellow color seen on Earth. continues
