I've been updating you since 2008 on the experiment to grow barley in space, then use it to make beer. Now it can be reported: Sapporo has gone to market with the new product.
The Japanese brewer had been working with Okayama University and the Russian Academy of Science during the five-month growing project on the International Space Station to grow the barley.
The beer is selling for about $110 U.S. per six-pack.
