NASA to experiment with fire in space

After carryingout many experiments in space , Nasa announced a new experiment that created curiosity among the space enthusiasts. NASA’s John H Glenn Research Centre is going to light huge fire ball in space as part of an experiment that seeks to understand how fire spreads in a micro-gravity environment. The experiment has been named the Spacecraft Fire Experiment (Saffire). The required equipment will be sent to the space in the unmanned vehicle. This will undock the International Space Station after dropping Key imflammable materials. This results could determine microgravity flammability limits for several spacecraft materials, help to validate NASA’s material selection criteria, and help scientists understand how microgravity and limited oxygen affect flame size.
