Send three years ago to space whiskey will return to Earth on September 12, the study will reveal how gravity affects the alcoholic fermentation and taste.
Bottle of whiskey would end three years of the Space space trip back to Earth, researchers will verify the true taste of wine in space.
According to foreign media reports, sent to space whiskey three years ago will return to Earth on September 12, the study will reveal how gravity affects the alcoholic fermentation and taste.
October 2011, Adelaide Island Ira Berger distillery in Scotland will not fully fermented malt mixture through an unmanned spacecraft sent to the International Space Station, while the bottle well charred oak particles. Scientists hope to understand how these substances react in near-zero gravity environment occurs under.
This special whiskey bottle at a speed of 27,724 km run in orbit around the Earth, flying in close to three years time, the same ingredients of a bottle of wine placed in a winery has been in Adelaide Berger did not open, it will serve as a control samples.
This is expected to be a bottle of whiskey a special space on September 12 carried by a rocket landed in Kazakhstan on land, after two samples will be sent to a laboratory in Houston, scientists will compare them to check unfermented malt and charred Oak particles interact reaction occurs, observe the difference ground between whiskey and whiskey in space.
Adelaide Berger whiskey distillery produced by distillation and director Bill – Bloom Stearns (Bill Lumsden) Dr. said: “Adrian Berg winery dedicated to the development of the world’s most unique taste of whiskey, so it is suitable to be the first to whiskey wine brewery sent to space, we are currently close to the answer, or will find exciting experimental results. “
This is one small step for the development of human technology, but it is a big whiskey developed the same time, researchers hope to uncover under different gravitational conditions whiskey taste, discover what factors for whiskey production process has an important influence.
