'Out of this world' Japanese beer

A Japanese brewery has created a beer using barley grown from seeds which spent five months on board the International Space Station.

At 10,000 yen, or £68, for just six bottles, the limited edition brew tastes no different from standard beer.

Scientists involved in the joint Japanese-Russian project say this bodes well for attempts to grow other edible plants in space.

Jonathan Josephs reports.
