This is how brandy reached ISS
Russian astronauts admitted that they had taken the brandy bottle to the space station in 1997. Space passengers hid the liquor inside their special suits and called it a juice bottle. Not only this, he reduced the books going with him and hid the bottles of liquor in his place. According to the news of the Daily Mail, an astronaut had even hidden a bottle of liquor inside the wristband tied on his wrist. This wrist band was used to measure blood pressure. Some passengers ate less food to reduce their weight so that a bottle of liquor equal to the remaining weight could be taken inside their space suit. The advantage of this was that Russian astronauts reached the space station without seeing anyone, carrying the bottle of liquor.
Daru party was held at the space station, the picture went viral
A photo from the 1990s is going viral in which astronauts are seen performing ‘Koganac Party’ (brandy party) at Mir Space Station. It was drawn by NASA astronauts. Alcohol consumption is officially banned at the space station because an element found in it can cause significant damage to ethanol space station equipment. Not only this, even while going to the bathroom, alcohol can cause a crisis. According to NASA, alcohol and its elements can damage the water recovery system of the space station. Even products that contain alcohol such as mouthwash, hand sanitizer and perfume are banned at the space station. On the other hand, astronauts have claimed that only a drop of alcohol in space keeps you calm and eliminates stress. (Pic: ISS Astronaut drinking water)
Alcohol was included in the first ration
In 2010, former astronaut Alexander Lajutkin reported that initially alcohol-based products were included in the astronauts’ rations. He claimed that the doctors described Koganac’s use as beneficial for strengthening the immune system. However, Russia’s space agency Roskosmos banned the use of alcohol and forced the astronauts to take the place from the liquor to the space station. Astronaut Igor Volk said that he and his other colleagues had lost their weight just before boarding the Salyut 7 spacecraft so that the liquor pouches could be hidden inside the unassuming spacesuit. The astronauts said that unlike the earth, alcohol helps you sleep in space quickly and when you wake up sleeping you feel refreshed the next day. (Symbolic picture)
Astronauts lost weight in this way for the sake of alcohol
Russian astronaut Volk said, “We did not eat anything before the launch. Only kept taking bread and tea. As a result, we lost about two kilos. We stuffed the liquor inside a small cellphone bag and while we were wearing a space suit, we hid these pouches of liquor inside it. He said that we removed the inside of a book so that a bottle of Cognac could be placed in its place. ‘ He said, ‘It was a thick book in which the emeralds could be removed and alcohol could be kept in its place. We put one and a half liters of alcohol in his place. The most important thing is that there was no sound of thunder from inside the book. Another astronaut admitted that he had carried several bottles of alcohol inside his suit. An astronaut demanded that alcohol be allowed at the space station as well.
