ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti points at the Dargon spacecraft she just grappled on 17 April 2015 with the 16m-long International Space Station robotic arm.
A special item on the Dragon spacecraft was the ‘ISSpresso’ machine that should offer a fresh brew of coffee for the Italian astronaut and her five crewmates. Spending months on the Station cut off from the world can be difficult, but a fresh cup of coffee can work wonders. Future capsules will extend the menu to include tea and soup.
Samantha published this image with the text: “There’s coffee in that nebula... ehm, I mean... in that Dragon.”
