    Burns at lower temperatures, flares up with less oxygen and methanol continues to burn after all flames have been extinguished!

    Excellent post! :toast:

    I'd forgotten about this thread languishing here in obscurity. I saw a 45 minute YouTube video a while back, which showed the odd behaviour of liquids and a little bit about fire in zero G. Fascinating stuff.

    Yeah that's lush. NASA even made a video about eggs in reduced gravity lol. I forgot about that but after this thread now I found it again
