What fire looks like under the condition of microgravity has been tested in the International Space Station's Combustion Integration Rack.

Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) has an image and their usual through explainer with links. You might ask why do this in the first place. Our curiosity played a part but some of the motivation was to help scientists understand fire.

Here is the eye-poppiing image. Take a guess on what you think it looks like before opening the link. I didn't have the chance and would certainly have been wrong, When I opened this I have no idea of what's ahead.
