The government, on its part, has pumped in immediate relief funds and rescue choppers to the battered north Indian state, which has been devastated due to torrential rains that have caused massive landslides and fatal floods.

This is what fire looks in space!

  • Fire is a very different and mysterious creature when it burns in a micro-gravity environment. 
  • Usually, flames in the presence of gravity (i.e. on Earth) form under complex chemical reactions. 
  • But gravity ensures that the flame on a candle, say, forms a ‘droplet’ shape — hot air rises, pulling in cool air behind it, shaping the flame. 
  • But in the absence a strong gravitational field — like the micro-gravity environment in the ISS — fire transforms into a very alien configuration. 
  • Rather than hungrily expanding to pull in oxygen like its terrestrial counterpart, the micro-gravity flame stays put, burning as oxygen flows towards it.
