I am writing on behalf of my son, who asked me a question yesterday. The question is, what happens to CARBONATED liquids in near zero gravity? If my boy were to open a bottle of coke in a space capsule, would the liquid explode, remain flat, or behave as on Earth? and if bubbles did appear, in which direction would they head? I would be very grateful if you could answer (in layman's terms ) so that I can pass it on to him. Faithfully, Dugald McIntosh.
