   Carmen  No, that is called a 'Beehive" because sometime in the 50's people claimed that bees were attracted to all the hairspray and would build hives in the hair. Since the ladies who wore those styles wouldn't wash their hair more than once every two weeks, the bees had plenty of time to make a home. Well, it could be true!!!!

   Wrightwinger  Looked it up. Since there is no buoyancy in free fall, the gases from the wax radiate outward in all directions instead of upward. This eliminated the shape of the traditional candle flame. No buoyancy, no density.

   Safetydude  How do they dare have an open flame in that O rich environment?

   Eagles Dominion  Oxygen is an accelerant, it promotes combustion and increases how rapidly something burns. It does not burn or explode yet you can't 'burn' something without it.

   Safetydude  Understood, E-D.

O2, or air, is only one of the three(O2,Heat,Fuel ) requirements for combustion.

The candle wick is the fuel, the air is the O2 and a match(? )is the heat source. Now you have the three components to create fire.

When you have an O enriched environment simple fuel, like a wax candle, can accelerated to uncontrolled combustion.

I didn't say that the O would burn, just add to the intensity of a fire. I'm still surprised that an open fire is allowed in the ISS.

   StormCnter  From The Week: An Oklahoma man was charged with burglary after police matched his DNA to used toilet paper at the scene of the crime. Charles Williams used the bathroom while burglarizing the home, but forgot what your mother always told you, "Flush!".
