The last place you want guys chugging beer is in space steering tons of high-tech metal over our heads, but that doesn't mean they can't bring the cosmic suds back to Earth. Japanese brewer Sapporo in association with Okayama University biologists, have invented Space Beer created with barley plants grown inside the International Space Station.
Although not currently scheduled for sale to the public, 30 lucky couples picked by random lottery are set to sample the beer in January. Until then we'll stay tuned to see if the space grown beer microbes yield any gamma ray-like super powers.
