Wine, to infinity and beyond …

Wine on Mars? That would be putting a (very, very big) cart before the horse, wouldn’t you say? However, for some years, the colonization of the Red Planet in all its forms, especially Elon Musk’s SpaceX project, has been a hot topic. Even if human beings can survive the extreme temperatures of the frozen deserts, achieving self-sufficiency in food production is still a priority. It seems that, before considering the need to feed themselves, even in the confines of space, humans are haunted by a particular throat-parching thirst. There is good news though; this selection of articles tells us that it appears to be “scientifically” possible to produce wine on Mars.
