The village of Beer is situated on the 95-mile long Jurassic Coast, England's first natural World Heritage Site and its picturesque cliffs, including Beer Head, form part of the South West Coast Path.
Pebbles or the beer... blame what you want!Beer has a steep pebble beach. This makes walking on the beach difficult.
Which goes to prove.... you CAN survive on beer!Bacteria taken from cliffs at Beer on the South Coast were launched to the International Space Station in 2008. The Beer microbes were placed on the European Space Agency's (Esa) Technology Exposure Facility and were sent up still sitting on, and in, small chunks of cliff rock from the Jurassic Coast. After 553-days they found that many were still alive. The survivors are now reproducing in a laboratory. This was part of an experiment to study the survival of microbes (which naturally live on the stone) in extreme conditions. A new species of cyanobacteria was isolated at the Open University that could be used in future space settlements on the moon and Mars to produce oxygen and break down rocks.
