A research project like none other.
Beer is the #1 entertainment drink in human history and wherever people go, beer is soon to follow. Along with the 4-Pines Brewing Company, this is a fun project to make a brew you can drink in space.
We're all about answering the big questions.
It's not just about a tasty beverage in space, but solving some serious problems faced by the space industry in general.
Human physiology changes in zero gravity.
Alcohol absorption by the human body is different. The tongue swells, the senses dull – altering the way food and drink tastes and wet burps (belching both liquid & gas) are a real thing. So we had to re-imagine beer from scratch.
Liquid needs gravity to pour.
The challenge is to drink in space the same way that you do on Earth, i.e., from a bottle, not a straw or a baggie. The space bottle uses surface tension to move the beer from the bottle to the neck where you can drink normally. The challenge was making a bottle fit NASA specifications and professional brew manufacturers alike!
And we have fun while answering them.
From fluid dynamics to literature reviews, the Vostok Space Beer project encapsulates Saber's desire to create an exciting workplace that solves some of the world's toughest problems.
