Soon You Can Get Drunk in Space!

Print comment Post Comments
It's a scene soon to play out in homes everywhere.

"It's 4:30 in the morning!  Where on Earth have you been?"

"Well, as a matter of fact, honey, I haven't been on Earth at all! I was having a few drinks with the boys down at Zebula's Tavern on the outskirts of the Gamma 4 Quadrant."

Yesterday, we read that scientists had discovered a new planet which lay in the habitable zone. Today, we read that scientists are on the verge beer you can drink in space. Seems about right.

Anthropologists have long argued that beer brewing parallels the rise of civilization.  During the Neolithic period, argues Michael Jackson, author of World Guide to Beer, hunters first gathered to cultivate the land, specifically grains that were turned to beer. 

So with space tourism on the rise, not to mention new, fantastic planets we can conquer (!), it’s only natural we intergalactic hunters gather again to crack the code of zero gravity brew. reports that new space beer is produced as a joint venture between Saber Astronautics Australia and the Australian 4 Pines Brewing Company.  To test how the beer tastes and affects body temperature, heart rate, and blood alcohol content, flight members from a little outfit called “Astronauts4Hire” (really) will take the beer on board a modified Boeing (BA) aircraft which flies in “a series of parabolic arcs that simulate environments of weightlessness.”

 How the scientists will control for an immediate bout of the spins remains to be seen.
