A candle in low gravity

A nice picture of a candle flame in low gravity. No one
really knew if a candle would burn in space, due to the lack
of convection to supply new oxygen. There is still diffusion,
but is it enough to keep the candle lit? Here's a picture
of a candle burning (cool) in low gravity. In space, the
flame is a sphere.
