The beer is in a job, and the reason for the space is the new frontier for alcohol

NASA is reconstructed and the view from the astronaut Buzz Aldrin’s window in the Lunar module, Eagle, and are displayed in a side-by-side with the original 16 mm film.

The idea of the alcohol content in the room may seem unusual, but for a number of companies and organizations are ready to tap into a number of new features.

On Dec. 5, SpaceX launched a 3-ton shipment to the International Space Station, with a miniature model of a brewery and malt house. The grains of barley that have been sent to the area to have a beer-malting experiment is made by Anheuser-Busch. It is the latest in a series of Budweiser-on experiments to explore the use of barley seeds as affected by the environment.

Gary Hanning, director of global barley research for Anheuser-Busch told Fox News that the malting experiment, it is the company’s third, following a research project which will be provided to dry the grain in the area and have it analyzed, for its germination.

With regard to the drying of the grain that has been sent to the area, Hanning, told Fox News that, when the seeds were returned to Earth, the company has noticed a number of differences in the areas in which it is planted, but it was the following year. The gene responsible for the germination experiment, the Anheuser-Busch observed a significant difference in the ISS compared with that of the Earth, and in particular, the cell structure of the components of the metabolic pathways.

“As the [beer-malting] of experiment, the malting process is to move the air and the water, and to control the temperature,” Hanning told Fox News by e-mail. “A big part of the experience is to have a better understanding of the interaction of the processes that are in the area.”

“There is still a considerable amount of interest in Space, the ISS, Moon, Mars, and Bud wants to get a better understanding of how the ingredients react in a microgravity environment, so that when we do go to Mars, Bud is going to be there,” Hanning added. “It’s a brand that has a history of pushing the innovation frontiers, and we look forward to sharing what’s to come.”

The other alcohol of the experiments, also carried out in the area. Last month, a dozen bottles of fine French wine, when we arrived at the international space station in the name of science. The red Burgundy will age it for a year before returning it to the Earth. Researchers to study how weightlessness and space radiation affect the process of aging. The goal is to develop new tastes and traits for the food industry.

In 2015, the Japanese beverage giant Suntory announced plans to send six samples of whisky and other alcoholic beverages on-board the international space station, but the company did not have an updated version of the experiment, when asked by Fox News for a while.

Chris Carberry is the author of “the Alcohol in the universe: the Past, Present, and Future,” and said that the alcohol-related area of research has important implications. Anheuser-Busch’s experiments with barley, for example, can have a direct impact on agricultural production in the area, according to Carberry.

“You’ll get a completely different industry, which is trying to solve the problems that we must solve before we can have a permanent presence on the Moon or Mars,” Carberry told Fox News. “[In the area], we need to create our own food-fast.”

But what about the consumption of alcohol in the room? In his book, Carberry explained that, although the astronauts and cosmonauts have been prohibited from drinking, in a job, and there have been stories of Russian cosmonauts to bring the cognac to the former Mir space station and the ISS. On occasion, this cognac is said to have shared with the astronauts. “It is in this context the free-floating globes of brandy in it, just a little shot,” he said. “I think it was an interesting diplomatic role.”

As for the US space program, there have been famous cases of alcohol-related employment. Miniature bottles of brandy, for instance, went into space on the Apollo 8 mission in December 1968, but it remained unopened. The following year, the Apollo 11 Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin took the communion, including a glass of wine, on the surface of the moon.

In his book, Carberry goes on the role of alcohol, as well as a glimpse into the future, with a possibility of a return to the Moon and manned missions to Mars are on the horizon. “Alcohol has played a central role, the good and the bad in the society,” he said, pointing to the impact on sectors such as agriculture, diplomacy, and human relations.

So, what would make a cat into the room to feel? Carberry said that it is still not known. “We don’t know how [alcohol], would consume it-in space,” he said.

And, what’s more, he points out that in a court, “as no man has ever drunk.”
