Finally, the Space Station Will Have an Italian Espresso Machine

Among the many science-related experiments scheduled to blast off a Cape Canaveral, Florida launch pad on Monday afternoon is a machine that could make astronauts' mornings much more energized as they orbit the Earth on board the International Space Station (ISS). Dubbed the "ISSspresso" machine, it will allow ISS crew members to brew espresso, tea, coffee, broth or other hot beverages, according to NASA.
