After two extended trips to the International Space Station (ISS), twelve bottles of wine and 320 vine shoots have finally returned home to Bordeaux, where tests will be carried out to investigate the effects of ageing in the thermosphere on France's most celebrated drop.
The red wine and 320 mature shoots, known as canes, arrived Monday after their return to Earth via the Dragon capsule operated by SpaceX, the private launching company.
They will be analysed at the Institute of Vine and Wine Science in Bordeaux to see how the stresses produced by zero gravity affect both grape growth and the finished product.
The initiative could spur a new trend in agricultural research.
"The WISE Mission is the first private applied research programme aimed at using spatial conditions to tackle agricultural challenges of tomorrow, on a warmer planet and with less water," said Nicolas Gaume.
