Apparently, Drinking, and Gif: Sam Cristoforetti Follow @AstroSamantha "There's coffee in that nebula"... ehm, I mean... in that #Dragon RETWEETS FAVORITES 7,490 9,213 pepoluan: sourcedumal: tockthewatchdog: prokopetz: lilium-m: rainbowbarnacle: devilishkurumi: European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, the first Italian woman in space, took a moment to celebrate Captain Janeway at around 250 miles above Earth. (CNET) (twitter) i bet someone else has already posted this by now but i thought it was really cool bc now we officially have had a cosplay selfie in space lmao also apparently this marks the first time a star trek uniform’s actually been worn in space i heard??? which is also awesome She did it again today! Also, in the picture she’s drinking coffee brewed with an espresso machine specifically engineered to work on the International Space Station - the ISSpresso (made in Italy!). The most amusing thing about this is that, at current launch prices, it costs in the neighbourhood of $4000 per pound to send stuff to the International Space Station. Eyeballing that uniform’s weight at about two pounds, this means that before Ms. Cristoforetti could take cosplay selfies on the ISS, she first had to propose to her nation’s space agency, with a straight face, that they should approve an extra eight grand to send that uniform up there with her in the first place - and that they agreed that this was, in fact, an appropriate use of their funding. Neeeeeeeerds. MY PEOPLE  This is awesome. I love Nerds in Space. All praise to Ms. Cristoforetti for making the dream come true.
