Space—it's the final frontier, home to many-a-weird thing, and former stomping ground of my close, personal friend astronaut Mark Kelly. But the one thing missing from the vast emptiness of the great beyond was a decent cup of joe. I mean, why is it so hard to find quality espresso anywhere outside of planet Earth?
Caffeine addicts looking to escape the atmosphere, rejoice: Lavazza has sent a specifically-designed espresso machine, nicknamed the ISSpresso. And it will be on its way to the International Space Station this afternoon aboard the newest SpaceX capsule, if all goes according to plan.
