Beer in Space | Andrew Walsh | TEDxPerth

Andrew Walsh combines his professional career in astrochemistry and his passion for brewing beer to compare the molecules found in space and in beer. 

Ultimately to answer the question of "Can we make beer in space?"

Andrew Walsh
Andrew Walsh received his PhD in 1999 and, since then, he has spent his time researching how stars form in our galaxy. His research focus is on studying spectral lines from molecules that can help us understand the conditions for star formation to occur. Some of these molecules are the same ones that turn out to be important flavor and aroma molecules in beer. Andrew is a Research Associate at Curtin University at Technology Park.
