Budwiser Sending Barley To Space In Hopes Of Brewing Beer On Mars

Budweiser maker, Anheuser-Busch, is moving forward with its plan to be the first company to brew beer on Mars.

The beer brand announced that it’s sending barley seeds to the International Space Station (ISS) this December to learn about how beer ingredients react in a microgravity environment.

Budweiser is predicting that when people finally build a city on Mars, the residents may want to drink beer from time to time.

To get the ball rolling, the famous beer brand will send two barley-based experiments to the ISS as part of the next SpaceX cargo supply mission, scheduled for December 4th.

Budweiser’s barley seeds will stay in orbit for around a month before returning to Earth for analysis. One of the experiments will focus on barley seed exposure. The second one will test barley germination.
