Two examples of Zero gravity. On the right dutch astronaut Andre Kuipers, in the ISS space station experimenting with a floating bleb of water in which he injected a bubble of air. On the left a K-Pg tektite from Beloc, Haiti. The image left is proof that the tektite was once melted, and solidified in space in free fall (=zero gravity) outside the atmosphere, before it re-entered the atmpshere. The air-pressure in the bubble is practically zero, same as the environment where it solidified.
