'Space champagne' tested out in zero gravity

Champagne house Mumm has developed a special twin-chambered champagne bottle for use in space.
The extravagant container, which stores the wine in one chamber and features a finger-controlled valve that can be used to eject small amounts of foam, deposits the champagne in to the air where passengers can quickly scoop it up using specially designed eggcup-style glasses.

The design was demonstrated in zero gravity today aboard an Airbus Zero-G plane which simulates the experience of being in space by climbing to a high altitude and then going in to free-fall.
Also on the flight was Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt who tried, with limited success, to run in zero gravity.

The firm hopes that future space tourists will prefer the new bottle design to drinking through a straw.

"They won't have to be performing any professional tasks on board, so they'll probably be able to drink a bit of alcohol," said astronaut Jean-Francois Clervoy.
