A Fragrant Brew

Innovation Now


The astronauts on the international space station, see sixteen sunrises each day. But they haven't been able to wake up and smell the coffee until now is innovation now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shave our future, astronauts in orbit often missed the comforts of home from favorite foods to a steaming Cup of coffee until recently coffee on the international space station, meant an unappealing freeze dried concoction served in a pouch. But an Italian company changed that by sending the first Expresso machine to space is spread. So is not much larger than a typical Earth-based Expresso machine and produces coffee broth or t water at room temperature is heated and pressurized to brew express out or other hot beverages improving food options and variety for orbiting crew members the technology developed, including extra safe. St. measures and sensors designed specifically for the orbiting laboratories microgravity environment. Could lead to new or improved ruling machines for use on earth and for astronauts on orbit the machine make space a little more like home for innovation. Now, I'm Jennifer pulley. Now is produced by the National Institute of aerospace through collaboration with NASA and is distributed by w HR V.
