Scientists from the Edinburgh International Science Centre have unveiled a two year experiment running on the ineternational space centre to find out what effects microgravity has on the production of whiskey.
NanoRacks LLC is the US company funding the research. They hope to understand the role of gravity in industrial processes, the maturation process of whisky being one of them.
We are all tremendously excited by this experiment – who knows where it will lead?

Drunken astronauts maybe?
