On April 13, at a few select places around the country, you’ll be able to take a swig of space. Ninkasi Brewing Company in Oregon is releasing Ground Control, an imperial stout brewed with yeast that travelled (very briefly) to space last year.
The first batch of yeast the company sent into space last July ended up lost in the desert after it returned to Earth, but in October, six vials successfully travelled into space and back.
