Wine on MARS!!

I think that I could go for this... 

  • We don't yet know if mankind will ever make it to Mars.  But if we do, one group wants to make sure there's plenty of good vino on hand.
  • Winemakers from the nation of Georgia are researching how to grow grapes on the Red Planet, which could one day be turned into Martian wine.
  • Right now they're working to determine the best type of grape to withstand radiation, dust storms, and other hazards on the Martian surface.  They say white wine has a better chance of survival because the grapes are 'more resistant to viruses'.
  • Georgia claims to have invented winemaking more than 8,000 years ago.  One researcher said "Our ancestors brought wine to Earth, so we can do the same to Mars".
