DescriptionThe production and consumption of alcohol has played a significant role in human society since the dawn of civilization. Will this still hold true when humanity is exploring and settling the outer reaches of space? This first book on the topic examines the history of alcohol in space, as well as dozens of companies and projects that are exploring the possibilities of alcohol production in orbit. Covering the long history of alcohol in human society, how alcohol has been addressed in science fiction, and space agriculture technologies, this book investigates a broad sweep of questions that bear on the manufacture of alcohol in space, as well as human space settlement in general.

"Interesting reading, avoiding most technical matters and presenting the material in an entertaining fashion."--Critical Mass; "One of the more common questions I get asked by fans of The Martian is, 'Could Mark Watney have made vodka from some of those potatoes?' Who knows what the future holds? Well, maybe Chris Carberry does. Kick back, grab your drink of choice, and enjoy this book about two of my favorite subjects."--Andy Weir, author of the best-selling and critically acclaimed novel The Martian
