    Working on flame dispersion and smoke dissipation.

    Yeah, that is cool. It looks like how an explosion would actually act in space.

    Awesome, it first i'd say they look bit bright.. but then you look t some of the old shows with explosions filmed on the practice models and it looks pretty spot on,,

    Very nice.

    What I've always asked me is, how exploding fire and smoke look like in vacuum and zero gravity for real. Is there any reference?

    Very little. Mostly, it's just NASA that's done experiments with fire in space. I watched a video last year showing a flame in zero gravity, and it was perfectly round. In a vacuum, I don't believe there is smoke, but then he also was creating an explosion that would have consumed fuel and oxygen. I don't know if an explosion in space has ever been recorded that closely. I do know anything and everything dissipates quickly, pretty much once it consumes all of its fuel, because there's nothing in space to fuel it.

    Yeah, I supposed that explosions look very poor in vacuum, mostly debris and very less or short fire.

    Yeah, I highly doubt space explosions would be as thrilling in real life as they are in movies and TV shows. Probably a quick flash and a pop, then it's done. Nothing but debris left.

    I think Howard has a nice compromise here, between a fiery explosion and what one would probably be like it space. At least it dies quickly.
