If a candle burns in micro-gravity it *might* form a sphere and snuff itself out because there’s no convection. However, if by chance it starts to stream off in some direction, might that not be a self-sustaining situation?
Saturday Physics for Everyone (SPE) is a series of lectures on modern aspects of the physical sciences held Saturday mornings each fall. The program began in 1993 and offers high school students the opportunity to hear presentations from world-class scientists and researchers.
By attending Saturday Physics for Everyone, you will learn about recent advances in the physical sciences, you will gain an understanding of how physics affects development in modern technology, and influences your life on a daily basis. A question and answer session is held at the end of each program. This is your chance to interact with renowned scientific leaders in the research community.
There is no schedule for Fall 2016.
