Beer travels to space

It's about time, really

Beer travels to space

The last thing we want our astronauts doing is getting mortal, so there’s a very good reason why there’s not been much beer in space thus far.

But these resourceful chaps have sent a tinny up to the farthest reaches of the atmosphere on a massive helium balloon and filmed the entire process.

We’d have just used a balloon from the fair and a piece of string, but not these fellas, who seal the can in a polystyrene box and then attach a camera and a GPS device.

The pictures beamed back of this brave beverage are most inspiring. Awesome, perhaps.

In fact, it makes us feel like cracking one open out of sheer respect.
