I promise that I'm not doing a series of space-related edible things, but this did catch my attention. Beer in Space Dr. Andrew Walsh, an astrochemist of James Cook University, has made it his mission to bring science down to Earth. And as any man worth his salt knows, beer fixes anything. After much research, the doctor has identified 12 mandatory components in the most basic of beer recipes and has already found 7 of them in space. Quote: "The problem with the other five is not that they don't exist in space, it's just that astrochemistry is a very young science. It's only been around about 10 years." Ha! Not only is this guy some sort of crazy mad scientist saying, "If we find something like an amino acid in space, that's one of the building blocks of life. That would tell us, that at least these amino acids, these building blocks can naturally occur in space and then maybe further down the track, we'll be able to show that life itself can evolve naturally in space." But he's also some sort of crazy mad genius, saying, "It lets people know that there is some relevance to what we're finding in space." And by insinuating what's actually holding humans back in their efforts to explore space is their sad lack of access to enough beer. "We need to get these basics sorted out before we can contemplate going into space and permanent adventures" he said. It's very early stages, but it's looking pretty positive that we will one day be able to make beer in space. Hmm, I'll drink to that. http://www.spacevidcast.com Beer, [whispering] in space.
