Wine in Space

We’ve lost count of space-related events. Following on from the ambition to plant vines on Mars (and drown our sorrows in wine), someone now wants to send the finest of wines into the void of space. There is a strict ban on consuming alcohol in space (for safety reasons, no doubt: a booze-soaked astronaut is likely to make a flamboyant re-entry to the atmosphere).

Nonetheless, studying what happens to wine in an environment subject to microgravity and radiation will help to improve long-term storage of foodstuffs and potentially to gain valuable information about possible adaptation to climate change.
