Water, Water, Everywhere...

I confess that I was startled many, many years ago when I first witnessed a “fire” burning in a vacuum inside a space craft.  No up, no down, no peak for the flame, in fact, I don’t recall “flame” but a globe of burning gas.  Normal activities (on Earth perspective) are quite different away from gravity.
