French wine to return to the Earth after a year in space

Jan 13, 2021 11:35 IST

After spending nearly a year aboard the International Space Station, French wine and some other snippets of grapevines are headed back to the Earth. SpaceX's Dragon cargo capsule is returning with 12 bottles of Bordeaux wine and snippets of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon along with other science research and gear, an Associated Press report said. The items were flown for agricultural research, according to the Luxembourg startup involved in the experiment. The capsule is expected to make a splashdown in the Gulf of Mexico, off the Florida coast on Wednesday night. The bottles of wine will be popped open in February, for an extraordinary wine tasting in Bordeaux!
