What does a match look like in space?
The flame of a match in space will look spherical. (The match
itself looks like a perfectly normal match!) To find out why this

p.s. I'm assuming here you're talking about a match lit inside a
space shuttle. A match in the vacuum of space itself would have no
flame, as there is no oxygen there to burn.
