I wonder if we can get in contact with the lady who did the experiment and get our hands on some space yeast!

I don't have space yeast, but I do have a mission patch that made a round trip on a space shuttle Years ago, my grad school was paid for by a grant to study plant hormones in space grown corn seedlings. This was a lab project, not my personal research. NASA did have a project back then where they flew a bunch of tomato seeds and exposed them to the radiation of space and then gave the seeds away, mostly to school kids to grow as part of their science class and look for mutations in the plants. I don't know what happened with that study.

I believe that a flux capacitor would be necessary for this to work.

I can't believe that no one else wants to get the green chicks drunk and get it on, like Captain Kirk.

Well you really wouldn't have to boil, except for Hop utilization (could use hop oil or extract instead) no need to sanitize, the space shuttles are pretty damn clean, they have to be.

And every direction is down in space....
