Abstract

The article describes the differences in the behavior of the liquid in terrestrial conditions under the action of gravity and those in microgravity, namely, it is shown what forces prevail in a particular case. The wetting and spreading of liquid, droplets form and boiling liquid in weightlessness are considered. The prospects of these liquid features using in space materials science are shown.
