Top 10 space-related drinks launches

In honour of the 50th anniversary of the first moon landings last month, we’ve rounded up a selection of outlandish, space-inspired beverages, including a meteorite-aged wine and a beer made with moondust.

Only last month the link between drinks and outer-space was strengthened after research conducted by Harvard Medical School revealed that a chemical found in red wine, called resveratrol, could be used to protect astronauts’ muscles during missions to Mars.

Dr Marie Mortreux, who led the study, explained that after three weeks in space the soleus muscle in humans can shrink by up to a third. Accompanied by a loss of slow-twitch muscle fibres, space travellers can experience a loss in endurance.

The research found that a chemical called resveratrol, which is found in the skins of red grapes and blueberries, can assist in preserving muscle mass and strengths in rats, even when subjected to zero gravity.

While this study has only just been published, the drinks industry has witnessed a wealth of space-related releases in recent years, from drinking vessels to space-related memorabilia.
