[Luxus+ Magazine]Mumm Cordon Rouge Stellar : soon champagne on Mars

A bottle of champagne from the French brand Mumm will be on board when a capsule of the American space agency Axiom Space, scheduled to depart before the end of 2023. The bubbly spirit has been designed to be drunk in space.

 

“Three, two, one, liftoff” Destination? The Axiom module of the International Space Station. The agency will take a bottle of Mumm Stellar champagne, adapted to space, in its luggage.

 

At first glance, the operation seems like a planetary communication stunt, but what if it actually made sense? To understand it, you have to put yourself in the place of the astronauts, to think that they spend months cut off from the world, without touching land, without eating or even seeing real food.

 

Octave De Gaulle, designer at the head of the Spade firm, which specializes in space design, gives his point of view:

 

Imagine a crew in their capsule on their way to March for five months, whose members have not seen a fruit or vegetable since their departure, are no longer in direct dialogue with Earth. They are confined to one or two rooms, sleep in sleeping bags hung on a wall… And one day, it’s the birthday of one of them, or Christmas. How to mark this moment? With the champagne that we have developed, they will have a moment of conviviality and humanity. It’s not about drinking, risking drunkenness, but about recreating up there a ritual that we know on Earth, where it is impossible to realize it for the moment.
