Single Serve Coffee in Space
“Bean” me up! Add one more to the list of exotic javas: Space Coffee. On June 2, a quarter-pound of coffee beans will be carried to the edge of space.
The spacecraft will be a high altitude balloon, and the beans will ascend to an altitude of 20 miles. This is high enough for the sky to turn black and the horizon to be a blue curve. The coffee beans will be exposed to extremes of cold, vacuum, and cosmic rays, and at the end of the mission, the vehicle carrying the coffee will descend to Earth by parachute.
We're not sure where the coffee will land, but maybe we could get some of those amazing space beans to create the perfect cup of single serve coffee...maybe...
