Michal Bodzianowski developed a way to make the alcoholic drink in orbit.

Michal Bodzianowski, an eleven-year-old sixth grader from Colorado, has developed a way to brew beer in space and his microbrewery experiment will soon be delivered to the International Space Station (ISS) where astronauts on board will test it using his instructions.

Bodzianowski bested almost four thousand budding scientists to win a National Center for Earth and Space Science Education competition, which was part of the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program. Eleven proposals out of the 744 submissions were selected to fly to space on the Cygnus spacecraft, which is expected to launch in December.
