Creative Beer Making

It would appear that a group of students have highlighted a significant oversight on Nasa’s part when it came to the moon landing.  No-one tested whether it was possible to brew beer on the moon.

Apparently Nasa think it would be possibly for human’s to colonise the moon by 2022 at a cost of a mere US$10billion, but how many people would want to go if there’s no alcohol?!

A team of University of California, San Diego students are competing to send an experiment to the moon, aboard a spacecraft built by Indian startup TeamIndus.

The spacecraft has been funded under Google’s Lunar XPRIZE competition.

It seems like a stupid idea on the surface, but dig a bit deeper and the beer part is a useful headline covering the viability of yeast in space, which is important for things like pharmaceuticals and bread.

Creative ideas can be a scary thought.  Most of the time, in most situations, they’re proposed only as a result of absolute need of imminent failure.  That’s why I, as a teetotal, think this idea should be celebrated.  It makes a change to be proactively creative and, even if the experiment fails, at least they will have learnt something from the experience.

She called me late last night, to say she loved me so
It didn’t matter anymore
I say she never cared
And that she never will
I’d do it all again
I guess I’ll have to wait until then

And if I get drunk well, I’ll pass out
On the floor now baby
You won’t bother me no more
And if you’re drinkin’ well, you know
That you’re my friend and I say
I think I’ll have myself a beer

She called me late last night, to say she loved me so
but I guess you changed her mind
Well I should have known, it wouldn’t be all right
but I can’t live without her
So I won’t even try…

And if I get drunk well, I’ll pass out
On the floor now baby
You won’t bother me no more
And if you’re drinkin’ well, you know
That you’re my friend and I say
I think I’ll have myself a beer

Maybe some day, I’ll think of what to say
Maybe next time I’ll remember what to do
She looks like heaven, maybe this is hell
Said she’d do it all again, she’d promise not to tell!

And if I get drunk well, I’ll pass out
On the floor now baby
You won’t bother me no more
She said
It’s okay boy cause you know
We’ll be good friends and I say
I think I’ll have myself a beer
I think I’ll have myself a beer
