    Just saw a film called event horizon ... nice film btw!

    Anyways theres a part there where they talk about fire at zero gravity...
    Would it just spread in the whole vicinity? I tryed googling it and it says that the fire would contain its self in a small ball. Dosent make sense to me someone care to explain in idiot terms?

    If you want fire, you need air so it would not spread in the whole vicinity.

    That is a computer generated image & say's nothing about a zero grav simulation. In fact It's just a royalty free FX to be used by anyone.

    The fire is a ball rather than a tear drop shape. Heat is released equally in all directions and not just concentrated above. The flame has a concentration of very hot air. This is less dense than cooler air. Normally where there is gravity less dense air would rise, however in space it can not rise because the air has no weight, so density does not apply.

    Fire has a higher temperature in Zero G and spreads faster to boot.

    Was watching a doc on how dangerous fire would be on the INTL Spacestation.
