Expert Answer:

In artificial satellite, the weight of any object will be 0.
The weight of the displaced liquid by it when it is immersed in a liquid is also 0...as on any object in an artificial satellite, centripetal force and the gravitational force cancels each other.
So there will not be any bouyant force.as it is the weight of the displaced liquid.
