The beer company held a “Bud On Mars” panel intended to help develop the first beer capable of being drunk in space or on the low-gravity Red Planet.Microgravity microbrew?
“We have a lot of stuff that reminds you of home, but we don’t have beer,” Clay Anderson, a retired astronaut recruited by Budweiser to develop microgravity microbrews, told Co.Crate Monday. “Would it totally change the experience? No. Would it make it better? Absolutely.”
The Budweiser panel identified several issues with sending beer into space.
Carbonated beverages like beer don’t do well in a zero-gravity environment, and the pressure inside a beer can or bottle could be different than the pressure outside the container, which could cause a small explosion.
