Eleven year-old Michal Bodzianowski designed an experiment in which beer will be brewed in space…an eleven year old…who has never drank beer before is doing this for all of humankind…my hero.
The young chap will be sending a test tube filled with hops, water, yeast and malted barley up to the International Space Station (along with instructions)this December so that astronauts can begin brewing up some space ale (which I’m sure is going to make all the people up there more than happy). The science-y part is all about testing the effects of brewing beer in space but we all know what this is really about, NASA getting it’s freak on (I wonder how much it will cost for an astronaut to drunk dial their uber crush at 2am?).
