Have you ever wondered how the astronauts get their java jolt while in space? Endeavour shuttle astronaut Don Pettit brought up some instant coffee for his trip to space a couple years ago and he managed to invent a new way of drinking it.
Normally, the astronauts have to drink liquids in pouches with straws but now with Mr. Pettit’s invention, the surface tension inside the pouch holds the liquid safely. He took a page out of his Flight Data File mission book to create the zero gravity cup shown in the video below.
