Stan Lee Speaks out on His New Cameo in ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’

Marvel’s Spider-Man on PlayStation 4 is filled with Easter eggs and familiar nods that players can’t help but to enjoy.

Space champagne created for zero-gravity celebrations

The race for affordable space tourism is on, but what will travelers drink to celebrate when they finally achieve orbit?
Champagne would seem the obvious choice — but while knocking back effervescent wine in zero gravity might sound simple, it isn’t.
In outer space, everything has to be rethought: the pouring of the liquid, the way that bubbles function and the very taste of the champagne itself. Champagne house Mumm thinks it’s spotted an opportunity to create the first fizz that can be drunk while floating in weightlessness. It’s spent three years and an unspecified amount of cash to develop Mumm’s Cordon Stellar, a beverage its creators believe will be being drunk in space within the next five years.
