Yakult boldly going ...
Yakult and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency will start an experimental project in 2017 to examine how bacteria work on human health in outer space. Crew members of the International Space Station will consume capsules of Lactobacillus casei Shirota, Yakult’s unique bacteria that is found in their fermented milk drinks.
Yakult has developed a technology to freeze-dry their live bacteria and keep them in capsules at ordinary temperatures for as long as nine months. Capsules containing the bacteria will be carried on a U.S. unmanned vehicle to the ISS. In outer space, bacteria levels in the body are believed to change; this is seen as a challenge which needs to be researched for extended future space travel.
