In space, no-one can bring you coffee…

Planet Earth is blue, and there’s nothing they can do…

Uncooperative weather Wednesday morning continued to delay the return of space shuttle Endeavour and the crewmen who had a record-setting stay aboard the international space station. […]

“We don’t believe we’ll have a shot at this first chance. Hopefully (the storm system) will start to fall apart and give us a shot at the second chance” at Kennedy, Mission Control told shuttle commander Kenneth Cockrell. […]

One necessity is running low: coffee. Cockrell jokingly asked Mission Control if he could go back to space station Alpha and get some extra coffee he had left there. His request was denied.

“OK, well, we thought we’d ask anyway,” Cockrell said.


Oh, the humanity!
