Back from Outer Space: Bordeaux Comes Back Down to Earth after 12 Months Aboard the ISS

13 JANUARY 2021

Twelve bottles of Bordeaux wine will be opened in February, after spending a whole year aboard the International Space Station. Researchers will try, for the sake of agricultural science, to understand how space alters sedimentation and “bubbles”. Another interest of this scientific mission is a possible future space colony, where the ability to export fine fare and “life’s little pleasures” will be just as important as the technological issues.
