Coffee is beverage that is enjoyed by millions of people around the world and by people out of this world. No I'm not talking about little, green men- although I am pretty sure if aliens tasted coffee they would enjoy it too. I am referring to astronauts.
Astronauts enjoy their morning cup of joe too! However, due to the constraints of space travel, coffee enjoyed in space sounds a little bit different than the coffee experience on Earth. Due to the absent pull of gravity, astronauts are not able to pour coffee in a cup and sip on it. Instead, they are forced to drink their coffee out a straw. According to an article on Rice University website, coffee in space is in freeze-dried pouches. Water is added to the pouches and then the coffee is sipped through a straw.
Fortunately, this could all change due to a new Zero Gravity Coffee Cup. This new cup will allow astronauts to actually enjoy coffee from a cup! ( CLICK HERE to read more about the Zero Gravity Coffee Cup.)
All this talk of enjoying coffee in space got me thinking- what other unexpected places do you enjoy coffee? In a plane 30,000 feet above land, in a submarine, a hot air balloon, perhaps in an RV out in the wilderness!
We can't wait to hear from you!
