We know that single serve coffee has changed our lives, but has it changed it enough to make us a feel motivated to become an astronaut or scientist? According to Astronaut Leroy Chiao a coffee maker was just the thing that got him through school, and changed his life putting him on the track for space.

I had a few machines before, but the game changer was a Salton Three-for-All, that I acquired back in 1984. In addition to regular coffee, it could also brew espresso, and given a little talent for controlling the limited amount of steam it generated, one could also make a cappuccino of sorts. This machine served my roommates and me well during my graduate student days.

So - perhaps we all need to look at that single serve coffee maker in our lives, and realize it's probably doing more than just making us caffeinated. It might just motivate us to the moon and back.
