NASA is poised to study flames in space! Microgravity conditions, such as those on the International Space Station, allow the creation of spherical flames like the one in this picture. This lets researchers study behaviours that are difficult to analyse down on Earth. NASA’s Advanced Combustion via Microgravity Experiments (ACME) project will be studying microgravity flames in a range of conditions, and the results could even lead to fuel efficiency and pollutant reduction. 📷: @NASA #science #space #microgravity #physics #flame #internationalspacestation #iss #nasa #sciencealert http://ift.tt/2rFP7sC
