    what is the boiling point of water in a zero gravity environment? Is the freezing point of water different in a zero gravity environment than in a kitchen freezer on Earth?

    If someone is boiling water outside Earths's atmosphere,it means he's in a pressurized cabin inside a space-vehicle,and the egg would boil as on Earth.Many caution measures have to be taken,though...The water & the egg will not free-willingly stay in the pot...:tongue2:
