At 8:20 the presenter talks about heat pipe limits and the effect Gravity has on the performance of these devices.

"The Capillary Limit is affected by gravity; it is the wicks' ability to overcome pressure drop in the system and return the working fliud to the heat source.

The largest pressure drop is typically caused by gravity. This will affect the maximum power the heatpipe can transfer, however it will not affect the thermal resistance of the heatpipe...."
