Twelve bottles of Bordeaux red wine are now back on Earth after aging for the last year aboard the International Space Station. The carefully packed wine, along with grapevine snippets were part of an agricultural research experiment to see what impact the harsher conditions of space may have had. And importantly in the name of science, some of France’s top connoisseurs and experts are expected to uncork the bottles for a taste test.
