This is not a joke. Budweiser announced that they will be the first to bring beer to Mars. They’ve partnered up with scientists and researchers from the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space and Space Tango.
Their first experiment is bringing 20 barley seeds to the International Space Station on SpaceX’s CRS-13 mission on December 4th. They’ll be testing how the seeds will be stored in a microgravity environment. The next experiment will test the growth rate.
If these seeds can be stored and grown properly, Budweiser might’ve just figured out space beer.
