International space astronauts and astronauts do not have to wait for a powerful coffee fire to wait for Earth to return.
Sixty silver bags of strong stuff, courtesy of Death Wish Coffee Company will be on Friday, 5:42 pm, a drive from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station to the orbiting outpost of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket Two-time space shuttle astronaut Nicole Stott, a coffee lover, and visitor of the powered Death Cast podcast, who died last year after a long spacewalk to get tired.
rise like a strong cup will help him with a comprehensive recovery. After all, she backed the company in the hands of food specialists at NASA to get the "strongest coffee in the world," which confirmed that it would be a good pair of flight crew care packages.
"We will be at the International Space Station," said Jeff Ayers, head of the station for Death Wish Coffee. "Even saying that out loud still does not seem to be real."
Teams at Death Wish, he said, had to develop an instant version of the coffee that would meet the requirements of NASA. Once sealed in the bags, astronauts can pump in 8 ounces of hot water with a small nozzle and then add an elongated straw to drink.
A mixture of Arabica and Robusta beans, the coffee should have no problems Astronauts and cosmonauts get a stimulation of the nervous system ̵
"It is the mixture of these beans and then the roasting process", which helps to develop the strength of caffeine and the taste of the coffee. Ayers said, including the temperature, time, and roaster itself.
It's not the first coffee to make it to the station, but all the extra caffeine should help the team work on research and equipment from the Dragon spacecraft This includes studies on artificial intelligence thanks to a spherical "autonomous astronaut" known as CIMON ; an investigation of Water stress in plants and how they might respond to climate change; and a replacement tail to the robot arm on the ISS, known as Canadarm2, to name but a few.
Air Force weather forecasters now expect 90 percent "go" conditions for launching Falcon 9 from Launch Complex 40 during the immediate window. A fourth-generation block-4 booster, which launched NASA's Transit Exoplanet Survey Satellite in April, will make its second and final flight for the mission. The Dragon spaceship was flown earlier – its latest mission was completed in July 2016 for SpaceX's ninth run to the ISS under the NASA Commercial Supply Services Agreement.
The launch on Friday marks SpaceX's 15th, known as CRS-15, out of a total of 20 uncrewed missions. It will show one of the last few times that the company flies a Block 4 version of Falcon 9, which has been replaced by a more sophisticated and efficient Block 5 . CEO Elon Musk says the improved boosters can fly up to 10 times with minimal refurbishment, while Block 4 could only fly twice.
SpaceX will find the booster, so no landing in Cape Canaveral or on the companies of course I love you still drone ship. But the early start in the morning should be a good sight – Falcon 9 will start just as daybreak approaches, so its trajectory should be illuminated by the rising sun.
