Coffee and Dessert Makes It’s Way to the ISS on ESA Resupply Ship

Now being aboard the ISS (International Space Station) must be an amazing privilege indeed, living way about the earth seeing everything that’s happening below. For the lucky few that get to live/work up there for a living they need to be able to function like the rest of us here on the gloomy earth. Eating, breathing, sleeping, you know, normal stuff that we do becomes incredibly difficult up in space because there is no gravity, which as awesome as that is, can be annoying.

Now astronauts deserve a treat now and again, they are away from their families most of the time, so in this next refueling mission the astronauts are being sent Cappuccino and Tiramisu, as well as Oxygen, fuel and other essentials. The resupply ship is set to dock with the ISS on August 12 at about 9:30 am. This is the last resupply mission that the ESA will perform.

Seeing as this is the last resupply mission ESA will ever perform, someone needs to take over. Russian Progress spacecraft and the Japanese HTC cargo ships will be taking over from ESA. When the resupply is launching from the USA, missions will be handled by SpaceX and Orbital Sciences. So there are plenty of people to keep the astronauts topped up with air, fuel, spare parts and much more for the foreseeable future.
