Το πρώτο "Beer in Space Tour" κοντοζυγώνει ... Κανένας για "διαστημική" μπύρα ?

Έχεις τουλάχιστον 95.000 δολάρια εύκαιρα για ξόδεμα ?
Γουστάρεις να πιεις την μπυρίτσα σου στα 300.000 πόδια πάνω από την επιφάνεια της Γης, με 0 βαρύτητα και να απολαύσεις τον "πράσινο πλανήτη" όπως δεν τον απόλαυσε ποτέ κανείς ?
Αν σε όλα τα παραπάνω η απάντηση είναι " ΝΑΙ", τότε περίμενε μέχρι το 2013, όπου το πρώτο " Beer in Space" Tour, αναμένεται να γίνει πραγματικότητα !!


Πού όλα αυτά ? Στην Αυστραλία ασφαλώς ... !!!




Φυσικά και το όλο concept θα πρέπει να περιλαμβάνει και μια μπύρα ...
Αυτή είναι η Vostok, μια μπύρα που φτιάχτηκε ειδικά για να την απολαύσει κάποιος σε συνθήκες όπου τα κιλά όλων μας δεν έχουν κανένα νόημα και αξία !!


Η 4-Pines Brewing Company λοιπόν ετοίμασε μια τέτοια "εξειδικευμένη μπύρα", μια Stout, όπου θα είναι κατάλληλη σε συνθήκες μηδενικής βαρύτητας !!!
αυτή η μπύρα θα προσφέρεται στους τυχερούς

Vostok is a partnership between Saber Astronautics (space guys) and the 4-Pines Brewing Company (beer guys) in Manly Australia!

This quality, unique, and flavoursome beer is made in a tradtiional Irish style and has a full creamy head, rich deep body of chocolate and caramel and a finish that goes for days!
 Awarded the Silver - Australian International Beer Awards 2010 and 2011. 
Bronze - Sydney Royal Show 2011



Όλα τα παραπάνω ήταν ιδέα της Thirsty Swagman Pty Ltd !!
Thirsty Swagman Pty Ltd was launched on April 2nd 2007, providing a real and exciting alternative to sightseeing travel for those who enjoy a good night out.

Αυτό είναι το πακετάκι του concept ::

Beer in Space tour (coming 2012 / 2013)

It's the nectar of the gods, and now you can touch the heavens to drink it.
Never in the history of humanity has such a giant leap been made possible. To drink a beer in space.

At 300,000 feet in zero gravity, you'll see the world through the bottom of your glass.
Travel to the edge of the atmosphere at over 3 times the speed of sound
Go down in history as the first humans ever to consume beer in space
After-event party with the Thirsty Swagman crew

Thirsty Swagman now takes you not just on the coolest party tours on planet earth, but into space for the ultimate travel experience. The trip of a lifetime... the pinnacle of adventure.

You'll be amongst the first human beings to take part in the next frontier of space exploration, and go where no man (or woman) has gone before.

You'll pass through the Kármán line, the official height of space at 100 kilometers / 62 miles altitude where you'll be weightless for 5–10 minutes, with a view that will simply take your breath away.
The beer you'll drink has been specifically brewed for consumption in space, and is officially certified as space beer.

It's one small thirst for man, one giant first for mankind.

Space flight or zero gravity flight (see options below)
2 to 3 days preparing for space flight
Introduction to consuming liquids in space
Vostok Space Beer (brewed by our mates at 4 Pines Brewing Company)
One hell of a party afterwards (Thirsty Swagman style of course)
Extras incl. video production, space beer shirt, astronaut certificate etc.
The most incredible view of earth you've ever had through a bottle

Beer in Space flights are planned for 2012 / 2013 from US$95,000 (space flight) and from $9,900 (zero gravity / parabolic flight).
Options incl. hotel accommodation, airline flights to and from location etc. available on request. Please note, this is a new concept in travel and currently we're still working out the finer details (eg. regulations on beer consumption in space, logistics etc). Prices and details are approximate only, and subject to change as space tourism becomes more popular.

This is your exclusive chance to register your interest in drinking beer in space – as soon as we're cleared for take-off, you'll be the first to know!



Και για να μας λύσουν μερικές απορίες οι υπεύθυνοι του προγράμματος ...

What happens when you drink beer in space?
Beer aficionados will notice two differences when drinking in space. First, the sense of taste is reduced due to mild swelling of the tongue. Second, drinking beers can be uncomfortable—bubbles do not rise to the top, because there is no “top” in space. Gasses and liquids don't like to separate. So if you have to burp, you will burp both beer and bubbles.

How has this changed your recipe?
Any space beer must be high in flavor and low in carbonation. We are looking into other effects as well, such as certain nutrient transferral properties of beer which can ease certain stresses during long duration spaceflight.

What kind of beer is it?
The baseline recipe is a stout, which is already high in flavor and low in carbonation. It’s based off the 4Pines Stout which won silver at the international beer awards in early 2010.

How will you know this stuff is drinkable in space?
We demonstrated the beer in 0-gravity parabolic flights on 26 February 2011. We selected professional microgravity flight researchers to sample and give us feedback-- They are the judges. The experiment actually exceeded the difficult conditions of space flight, going from 1.8g (nearly twice your body weight) to 0g and back fifteen times. 6-samples of 150ml beer were drunk, and basic biometrics were taken in between samples to measure effects that the carbonation level in the beer had on the tester. Our first flight test showed no effects from carbonation.

Hasn’t this been done before?
Not really. One company brewed a test-tube of beer in space, but the focus was on brewing process, not the recipe itself, and nobody in their right minds would limit their drinking to a single test-tube. Another company brewed beer from barley that was the great-great-great-great grandkids of a set of barley grown in space…which is cool until you realize you just spent three times the cost to drink a normal pilsner style beer on Earth which is undrinkable in space.

So how is Vostok different?
We’re focusing solely on the recipe, flavor, and drinkability. The point is to be drinkable in space. This is not a “novelty beer” with the same bland taste as your normal stuff. This is a craft beer. It is meant first for people who love beer so it MUST TASTE SUPERB on Earth. It will support the growing space economy by being equally superb in microgravity.

Και μια άποψη .. από τα "δοκιμαστικά" της μπύρας ... !!!



Footage from 26 Feb 2011. 
This was the first beer in aviation history to be legally served on a commercial 0-g flight. 
The tester drank six samples of 150ml each, while recording skin temperature, heart rate, and alcohol absorption. And best result is... NO wet burps :)

Ασφαλώς και το παραπάνω concept αποτελεί μιας πρώτης τάξης ευκαιρία για όλους τους άχρηστους πολιτικούς της χώρας μας που ζουν στο δικό τους "διαστημικό" κόσμο να μαζέψουν από τώρα τα μπογαλάκια τους και να πάνε να μείνουν εκεί πάνω για πάντα!

Ποιος ξέρει... 
Ίσως έτσι, στα 300.000 πόδια ψηλά και με συντροφιά μια μπυρίτσα καταφέρουν να δουν, έστω και καθυστερημένα, το πόσο έχουν ρημάξει και καταστρέψει το δικό μας κόσμο!

όσο για τα φράγκα ...
σιγά ... 
Με ένα νέο Μνημόνιο, άλλο ένα Μεσοπρόθεσμο, 2-3 νέες έκτακτες εισφορές και άλλα 200 χαράτσια και τα ΓΚΑΦΡΑ μαζεύτηκαν ..

Πάντως, αν είναι πράγματι να ξεκουμπιστούν μια και καλή ... εγώ προσωπικά σας διαβεβαιώνω πως όποια χρήματα κι αν είχα θα τα έδινα ευχαρίστως για έναν τέτοιο ιερό σκοπό !!!

Καλημέρα ... ή μάλλον
έστω ...
 Καλύτερη από τη χθεσινή !!
