The team have developed a Space Beer but now need to raise $1 million to create an orifice to put it in and has taken to crowdfunding to raise the money.

They shared on their IndieGoGo page: "Having successfully created a beer that can be drunk in space, we now need to make the bottle so astronauts and future space tourists can drink in space just as we do on land. Your support will allow us to initiate tooling and manufacturing so we can make Vostok Space Beer a reality. With your backing, you can play a small role in sending the comforts from home with those who venture beyond our planet ...

"More recreational space flights have been booked than there have been astronauts in space in the last 57 years. With space tourism a burgeoning reality and hundreds of rejoicing, happy space fans booked on suborbital flights, we wanted to be well prepared ... We initially set out to create a beer that could be drunk in space and with that achieved, the next step was to develop technology that would allow people to drink the stout, or any liquid for that matter, from a bottle like their fellow land-dwellers."

It has been a six year project for the team at Vostok.

They added: "Alcohol absorption by the human body is different. The tongue swells, the senses dull - altering the way food and drink tastes - so we had to re-imagine beer from scratch. The biggest challenge is liquid's inability to pour in zero gravity. This means that to drink beer from a bottle the same way that you do on Earth, a special space beer bottle needed to be created. It's basically like making a fuel tank for your beer.

"We have been working on Vostok Space Beer for the past six years and we've come a long way. But now we want you to join the journey. Your support will allow us to initiate tooling and manufacturing so we can make Vostok Space Beer available to. With your backing, you can play a small role in sending the comforts from home with those who venture beyond our planet. You can know the impact you'll have on not just us, the beer and space community, but beyond even our own planet, and the future of space travel and research."
