Called SoFIE (Ignition and extinction of solid fuels), this experiment is the latest in a series of in-orbit investigations aimed at looking at how fire behaves in microgravity. SoFIE is part of a larger scale of science, supplies and hardware flying on Northrop Grumman’s Cygnus Resupply mission NG-17, is scheduled to launch at 12:39 pm EST (1739 GMT) on Saturday (February 19).
