Boiling and Melting point of Liquids in space.

https://www.britannica.com/science/boiling-point

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boiling_point

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melting_point

Do the Boiling and Melting point of Liquids vary
in Space?

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Thanks.

So, the Astronauts in space carry water for drinking, cooking which could be chilled or hot?

But they cannot Boil water in space? Why?
Because of security reasons for the spacecraft?

They can easily boil water in space. Expose water to space and it will instantly boil. But it won't be hot, which is the property we are used to associating with boiling water.

The temperature at which water boils is dependent upon the local atmospheric pressure. It looks like they maintain the ISS at 1 atmosphere so water boiled inside of it would be at 100 degC as usual.

Although looking at this microgravity imparts it's own unique features onto boiling water.

You would really learn a lot more if you spent less time asking these questions of the people here and more time hitting google or equivalent yourself.

Math Focus: Wibbly wobbly timey-wimey stuff.
However, don't try to boil the water with a pot. Zero gravity will send blobs of hot water into the air! You'd have to find some way to microwave a closed package.
