A team of international researchers has discovered a new type of cool burning flames that could lead to cleaner, more efficient engines for cars. The discovery was made during a series of experiments on the International Space Station by a team led by Professor Forman Williams.  Researchers detailed their findings last month in the journal Microgravity Science and Technology.
