Right from Buzz Lightyear toy, numerous sound recordings to Beatles songs have been sent into space so far. And now, a European startup Space Cargo Unlimited launched 12 bottles of red wine packed in a metal canister to prevent breakage. Unfortunately, the wine isn’t meant for astronaut consumption.
In the name of science!
As per the company claims, it’s part of the experiment to study how space radiation and weightlessness (microgravity) affects the aging process. It’s worth mentioning that the red wine launched into space on Saturday from Virginia by aerospace company Northrop Grumman by the European startup Space Cargo Unlimited.
