Pee-powered coffee pot??
More like Urine for a "Rude Awakening!"
SpaceX is preparing to send a load of supplies up to the International Space Station – a resupply mission due to launch on Monday at 1633 EDT (2033 UTC, 1333 PDT). Three miutes after takeoff, the reusable first stage of the Falcon rocket carrying the cargo will separate and be piloted back to Earth, so SpaceX can try to land …
I doubt that it's truly "pee-powered". Maybe the coffee but not the pot. I guess it's good they finally get a few creature comforts... Maybe a mini-beer brewery could be next. The more they pee, the more espresso they can make.
A 3-second launch window sounds, to me, like someone is putting some pressure on Space-X... and I don't think it's because the ISS crew needs espresso that critically.
"the stuff starbucks insists is "coffee" would class as "grout" or maybe "rat droppings" here in this bediked little bit of lake-bottom."
Blind taste tests have placed McDonalds McCafe products and Dunkin Donuts coffee ahead of Starbucks. I prefer to assume that says negative things about Starbucks, not good things against their competitors.
... every single drop of water that you have ever ingested has been pissed and/or crapped out of one critter or another, and probably hundreds of thousands of critters, since at least the Cambrian explosion (about half a billion years ago), right?
Why always the locker-room humor about evaporation of water? Do you squeal every time it rains, lest you get some on you? Have you ever showered?
I've just had a thought. At the moment in the UK we're getting a great series of ISS passes, and I do remember being able to see a Cygnus pod as it was leaving the station last year (it was a much dimmer dot trailing behind the ISS by about one thumb's width), so I'm wondering if we might be able to see Dragon as it passes over the UK in the coming nights before it docks.
Keep an eye out people!
