Fire on the space station! Astronauts preparing ongoing combustion research.

Similar to the cult 1981 prehistoric fantasy film, NASA is on its own “Quest for Fire” to better understand how flames work in space.

The agency lit about 1,500 flames under six investigations on board of the International Space Station, as a part of the long-running Advanced Combustion via Microgravity Experiments, or ACME, project. The goal of the project, which began in 2017, used the microgravity environment to better understand the physics, structure and behavior of flames.
