Cosmic Caffeine: Astronauts Getting Espresso Maker

Talk about a cosmic caffeine jolt. The International Space Station is getting a real Italian espresso machine. The specially-designed-for-space espresso machine is dubbed ISSpresso ? ISS for International Space Station. Its launch early next year from Wallops Island, Virginia, is timed to coincide with the six-month mission of Italy's first female astronaut, Samantha Cristoforetti. The 37-year-old fighter pilot and Italian Air Force captain will fly to the space station in November aboard a Russian capsule. She'll be the first out-of-this-world Italy's century-old coffee maestro barista. Besides espresso, ISSpresso is capable of whipping up tea and consomme. What more could an astronaut want?
