When you’ve paid $200,000 for a seat on a galactic flight, the last thing you want is to be served a dud beer.
But space tourists of the future fear not: a series of experiments have been conducted to test whether your coldie tastes as good in space as it does on Earth.
Researchers at space engineering firm Saber Astronautics, in Sydney, have teamed up with 4-Pines brewery to develop a beer suitable for consumption in space.
CANBERRA is set to get a dedicated air and space museum following the signing of an agreement between the Australian National University and the world famous Washington-based Smithsonian Institute.
The agreement, signed overnight, marks the first step towards construction of a national museum on Mt Stromlo, the site of Australia’s first space observatory.
It sets out the first steps for cooperation that will support the development of a museum to tell the story of Australia’s contribution to space science and space technologies, and celebrate the special role Australian astronomers have played in the exploration of the cosmos, said ANU Vice Chancellor Ian Chubb.
