Space Coffee!

Everyone needs their caffeine fix, viagra usa even those orbiting the Earth aboard the International Space Station. Of course, the lack of gravity can make that difficult. Typically, astronauts drink fluids using a straw in a bag. Not very appetizing.

Now, as part of NASA’s Capillary Beverage Experiment, astronauts are using cups that can replicate the forces of gravity and keep liquids from “floating” all over the station. The “Space Cups,” which were designed with help from engineering group IRPI, rely on specialized cup geometry, surface tension and wetting that keeps the liquid in the cup.

Now that astronauts can enjoy coffee in space, is Cool Beans on the moon the next step? Check out the video below for a real-time demonstration.
