"Beer, while known to most people as a party drink, actually has some medical properties," Bodzianowski explained.

In December, his idea will leave the classroom and arrive at the International Space Station.

After that, astronauts will get to see how well beer ferments in space. Bodzianowksi hopes that could help during a medical emergency.

Medical applications? Right. Somebody just wanted to make beer in space for the hell of it I bet this Bodzianowski is a lurker on our forums.
