The bad news?

Well... they aren’t. Sorry.
There are 2 things wrong with the study that lead to the quoted conclusion:
1. Wrong point of view
2. Zero gravity is an unnecessary and complicating variable

I have taken part in many, many studies that have all come to the same, repeatable conclusion: propulsion by fart is not only possible, it is a fact.
Study set up: a semi-enclosed room
Participants: me plus N other living beings
Study execution: I fart
Study results: In every case, all N other living things move quickly toward the exit(s)
Study conclusion: farts do indeed propel living things

Anyone wishing to serve as a volunteer "N" subject for future experiments should contact me. Or your psychiatrist.
