Torchships ‘Candle’ is an experiment in simulating exploring and fighting in space. It will begin with individual movement inside a small starting space station, progress from there to EVA, and then on to larger and more capable spacecraft.

This demo is a first test of newtonian movement in zero g inside a small station and inflatable hab.
