Weird World: First crate of ‘space-aged’ wine returns to Earth

The first crate of ‘space-aged’ wine will be brought back to Earth.

The vino is set to touchdown on the planet aboard the SpaceX capsule as part of an experiment launched by a company based in Luxembourg. It had initially been shipped to the International Space Station in November 2019.

Nicolas Gaume, co-founder of Space Cargo Unlimited, said: “Our goal is to tackle the solution of how we’re going to have an agriculture tomorrow that is both organic and healthy and able to feed humanity.

“And we think space was the key.”

The 12 bottles were corked and carefully packaged in steel so they didn’t break in space and the wine will now remain sealed until next month where it will be tasted and sampled to see the impact of travelling in orbit.
