Astronauts who live on the International Space Station work hard. Reportedly, a French astronaut took along a bottle of wine aboard shuttle Discovery in 1985.

The Luxembourgh company, Space Cargo Unlimited, specialises in testing how the space environment impacts on materials used on Earth. The idea is to test the effects of space radiation and weightlessness on the wine's aging process, with the ultimate hope of developing new flavors and properties.

The clarets in question were packed individually in metal, breakage-proof canisters and will spend a year in space, presumably closed, just taunting the over-Tang-ed taste buds of all aboard.

Space Cargo Unlimited's site trumpets the wine experiment as a perennial scientific feat.

The process of winemaking makes use of both yeast and bacteria and involves chemical reactions hence wine is an ideal material for space study. The Bordeaux wines can be saved on the ISS at 18 levels Celsius for one yr earlier than being returned to earth and in comparison with a management pattern that has been stored on the same temperature.

After the third and final T20I in Perth on Friday, the two teams with play two Tests in Brisbane and Adelaide later this month. Hasan Tasleem, the self-proclaimed "die-hard" fan had to find a way to incorporate cricket into his wedding celebrations.

Not only are the bottles of wine aboard the ISS for scientific research, but according to Quartz, they're also meant as bait for the wealthy to fund the experiment through a "luxury goods partnership that will deliver a customized chest full of objects flown to space to ultra-wealthy sponsors, called patrons, who back the project".

The Cygnus capsule that pulled up to the space station on Monday contains multiple commercial ventures. In 2015, a Japanese company known for its whiskey and other alcoholic drinks sent up samples. Does this mean that we will try special space wine soon? Jessica Meir shared the image saying that the game found its way to the Space Station while the video of the three crew members playing baseball in the space lab was also shared by the official page for the coverage of World Series.

There are countless science experiments happening on the International Space Station, where astronauts on-board the ISS conducting the experiments in zero gravity while relaying the results back to researchers on the ground here on Earth.
