We don’t yet know if mankind will ever make it to Mars. But if we do, one group wants to make sure there’s plenty of good vino on hand. Winemakers from the nation of Georgia are researching how to grow grapes on the Red Planet, which could one day be turned into Martian wine. Right now they’re working to determine the best type of grape to withstand radiation, dust storms, and other hazards on the Martian surface. They say white wine has a better chance of survival because the grapes are ‘more resistant to viruses’. Georgia claims to have invented winemaking more than 8,000 years ago. One researcher said, “Our ancestors brought wine to Earth, so we can do the same to Mars.”
