A cup has been designed to take to space with you! This cup allows you to drink coffee as if you were on Earth.

The Space Cup  – designed by Mark Weislogel, Andrew Wollman, John Graf and Donald Pettit. The cup won, best product at this year’s Designs of the Year awards.

The cup, has been engineered to drive the liquid towards the astronauts mouth while they drink. “The design required careful experiments around the movement of liquids in low gravity or what Weislogel terms ‘space plumbing’.”

“The tiny cup brilliantly reflects the confluence of science, technology and design, responding to an extremely specific problem.”
