The first Italian woman in space took it to her Twitter page to post a selfie of her sipping from a cup designed for use in zero-gravity from the International Space Station, the Guardian reported.
For the occasion, she put on her Star Trek uniform top and tweeted: "Coffee: the finest organic suspension ever devised. Fresh espresso in the new zero-G cup! To boldly brew ..."
The espresso maker uses capsules of espresso coffee. Fifteen were flown up with the machine in a SpaceX cargo carrier, as well as five capsules for flushing out the system. More coffee capsules are available for launch if requested by the six-person crew.
