Cheers! French wine, vines headed home after year in space

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — French wine and grapevines are headed back to Earth after a year aboard the International Space Station. SpaceX’s Dragon cargo capsule undocked Tuesday with 12 bottles of Bordeaux wine and hundreds of snippets of grapevines. The capsule is aiming for a splashdown in the Gulf of Mexico off the Florida coast Wednesday night. It will return thousands of pounds of other science research and gear, including mice. A Luxembourg startup flew the wine experiments for agricultural research. The company will pop open a bottle or two in February for an out-of-this-world wine tasting in Bordeaux.
