The Italian Space Agency is about to make life in the International Space Station a lot more comfortable: this November, itll send up the first espresso machine to the station, one thats designed specifically for operating in space. Together, we will for the first time offer coffee inside the International Space Station, Giuseppe Lavazza, a company VP, says in a video describing the new machine. It operates using capsules, which Lavazza says helps to brew the drink in the space stations weightless environment, where liquids behave quite differently. A prototype is currently being tested by Argotec, in preparation of having it sent up later this year alongside astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, who will become the first Italian woman in space.
