Drinking Coffee at Zero Gravity

All we can say is bless Don Pettit. While working on the International Space Station in 2008, the NASA astronaut  shot videos that are literally and figuratively out of this world: The Aurora Borealis Viewed from Orbit and What It Feels Like to Fly Over Planet Earth. And then we discover that Pettit invented a “zero-g coffee cup” that lets you drink coffee in outer space without using a straw. That’s one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind….

    Actually, there is no zero gravity in space; the direction of the force can be horizontal. You can still drink coffee as you like even at space.
