Washington, Sep 28 (ANI): If you love beer and fascinated by travelling in space, then here's your lucky chance- testing on a space beer is scheduled to begin in November.
While NASA has a strict no-alcohol policy, a nonprofit research group called Astronauts4Hire is doing the honours aboard Zero Gravity Corp.'s airplane, which simulates the microgravity environment of space by making parabolic dives.
Specially brewed by the Sydney, Australia-based 4-Pines Brewing Co., the beer will be put for testing by participants, who will decide how drinkable it is during the microgravity portions of the plane ride.
4-Pines worked with a startup space engineering firm, Saber Astronautics Australia, on developing the beer, which the companies hope to certify for spaceflight, reports Discovery News.
The beer will soon be available for terrestrial consumption as well, reports Discovery News.
It's the first paying job for Astronauts4Hire, which lists 17 partners on its website.
As part of the research, the lucky participant will wear sensors to monitor his or her body temperature, heart rate, and blood alcohol level. (ANI)
