Fire in the Hull!
Fire behaves very differently in zero gravity, and NASA wants to study it. The problem? It is very, very foolish to set fire to something inside a spacecraft, and there are specific rules prohibiting flammable material even being on board. But those clever NASA scientists have come up with a very smart solution. Jeff and Anthony take a look at their the plan and consider the issue of space fire.
