Sometimes new developments are not only in order to move progress forward, but for the invention of very interesting things. As is customary to celebrate the start of a serious event? Butylkoj champagne! But in zero gravity, as you know, liquid takes on special properties that will not allow them to enjoy the moment. However, the French designer françois de Gaulle created a bottle of champagne, which is quite convenient, you can drink in space.
A special bottle for the authorship of the Frenchman consists of two chambers: the first is the beverage itself and the second gas. Chamber separated by a valve, which when opened creates a pressure that pushes sparkling drink in the form of a foam under pressure out through the neck.
“This method of drinking is impossible to experience on Earth. Champagne turns from foam to liquid in your mouth and it is an indescribable feeling. It falls not only on the tongue and fills the mouth, enhancing the taste effect several times.”
New bottle we want to test in the near future during the flight of the Airbus Zero-G, who will perform a series of parabolic maneuvers to create multiple 20-second manifestations of weightlessness. Moreover, the target audience of a new invention, not the astronauts, who will be able to consume alcohol on the ISS and space tourists such companies as Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin, the first party which needs to go into space next year.
