Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti has been living it up on the ISS since November as flight engineer of the Futura mission, and celebrated the SpaceX Dragon freighter's delivery of supplies earlier this week (including specially-engineered, Borg-proof Italian space coffee) by sharing an extremely nerdy pic on Twitter.
SpaceX successfully launched experiments and cargo to the space station, but its reusable rocket failed to land.
The coffee on the International Space Station is about to get much better. The SpaceX Dragon cargo capsule linked up with the station Friday morning, bringing a long-awaited ISSpresso machine.
SpaceX's Dragon cargo ship is expected to arrive at the ISS around 7 a.m. ET Friday.
