In the vacuum of space, no open flame can exist. In a contained environment in space however such as a star or the space shuttle, an open flame can exist. Remember, the Earth is in space as well but because oxygen, fuel and heat are present on Earth, flames can exist.

Also, understand that space is just the area that any mass can occupy. The Earth is in space, as are we.


YES... there are many suns ...


Fires require fuel, oxygen and heat. In space there is no oxygen as it is a vacuum and therefor there can be no fires.
