Wine vineyards on Mars to come in the near future

A group of scientists have been in the process of researching which grapes would suit the soil on Mars and how to best cultivate grapevines in space. These scientists are in the hopes that one day colonists might be able to make their own wine on the red planet. Additionally, this research may help answer the unknowns about radiation, dust, and other agricultural challengers on Mars, as well as the effects of radiation on grapes. The team of scientists anticipate that white grapes will fare better than reds. The wait to find out might not have to be too far in the future, as NASA hopes that a manned mission to Mars could happen by 2034.
