    Default ready to start astronaut training.

    Space beer. Thanks Aussies. Can we just reuse the bottle and put our own beer in?

    Do not get me started! There is a team on the West Coast that funds it's high school outreach work by taking yeast to 100,000 feet and then a local brewery makes "space beer". I have pitched the idea all over the northeast without success. Some people have a vision and some do not.

    There will be alcohol on spaceships when they are privately owned.

    Not even close---

    The Kármán line,or Karman line,lies at an altitude of 100 km (62 mi; 330,000 ft) above Earth's sea level and commonly represents the boundary between Earth's atmosphere and outer space. [2] This definition is accepted by the Fédération aéronautique internationale (FAI), which is an international standard-setting and record-keeping body for aeronautics and astronautics.

    Hope the voyage is a long one.
    May there be many a summer morning when,
    with what pleasure, what joy,
    you come into harbors seen for the first time...
