百威要酿世界第一杯火星啤酒

今年早些时候,百威(Budweiser)公布了成为首个登陆火星的啤酒品牌的计划。本周,公司朝着这个目标迈出了一大步,宣布将把啤酒的核心原料大麦送至国际空间站(International Space Station)进行研究。

百威将与几位研究人员一起,通过SpaceX的下一次货运任务,开展两次大麦试验。这次货运火箭预计将于12月4日从佛罗里达州的卡纳维拉尔角空军基地(Cape Canaveral Air Force Station)发射。大麦进入太空后,将在轨道中绕转一个月,随后返回地球开始后续分析。

百威的副总裁里卡多·马奎斯表示:“百威啤酒一直在推动创新的界限,登陆火星的共同美国梦给予了我们灵感。对于即将在这颗红色星球上展开的啤酒酿造研究,我们感到非常兴奋。”

Earlier this year, Budweiser announced its plans to be the first beeron Mars. This week it took one giant step toward that goal with the announcement it plans to send and study barley, one of the key ingredients in beer, on the International Space Station.

Budweiser, along with several researchers, will initiate two barley experiments via SpaceX’s upcoming cargo supply mission. The mission is scheduled to depart on Dec. 4 from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Once the barley makes it to space, it will stay in orbit for a month before making a return to Earth to be analyzed.

“Budweiser is always pushing the boundaries of innovation and we are inspired by the collective American Dream to get to Mars,” Ricardo Marques, vice president at Budweiser said in a statement. “We are excited to begin our research to brew beer for the red planet.”

The group will conduct experiments to see how barley seeds react to the microgravity environment. The research is expected to offer insight on what will be necessary to create beer on the Red Planet as well as provide information on the future production of barley here on Earth.
