Picture this: you’re sitting on your moon porch after a hard day collecting rocks, the Earth is setting and you’re sipping on a cool glass of Pocari Sweat Sports Drink. That could be the reality for some future astronaut. 

Otsuka is planning on sending a container of Pocari Sweat powder to the moon where, one day, an astronaut can open the container and mix it with water from the moon. How much will it cost to set the future table for this culinary experience? A cool $500,000.

Implications - Sending this drink to the moon is more than just a publicity stunt. It is also an experiment. Since the powder has to survive on the moon until astronauts arrive, it will need to be manufactured and packaged in a way that will protect it from the harsh lunar environment.
