Beer-Brewing on the Moon Project
Takasago Fluidic Systems is now the official sponsor for Team Original Gravity. Team Original Gravity is a project team by UCSD (University of California, San Diego) students, who are challenging to brew beer on the moon for the first time in history.
Takasago Fluidic Systems supplies pumps and valves for the brewing device that will be used on the moon. The device held by the project leader on the right is the actual brewing device, and what our engineer, standing in the middle, holds is the ultra-small pump for the device.
This project is one of activities by Team SYNERGY MOON, one of the teams competing for the Google Lunar XPrize, an unprecedented competition between privately funded robotic spacecraft on the moon. The brewing device will be launched to the moon in December 2017.
