Why can't you light a candle in a space rocket in space?

Question asked by: knowitall

This is because of the amount of oxygen in the air there.

Oxygen is what is needed for a candle to burn. That's why if you place a glass over a candle it will go out soon once all the oxygen is used up there is around it.

Similarly in the rocket there is not sufficient oxygen for the candle to burn.
