Hazzaa Al Mansoori, an Emirati astronaut tweeted how he had prepared coffee while he was on the International Space Station (ISS).
He said even in the space he needs to drink a cup of coffee when he conducts experiments.
He revealed that he made a cup of coffee by adding hot water to the contents of a sachet containing dehydrated and frozen and grounded coffee.
Al Mansoori is the first Emirati astronaut boarding the ISS via a Russian space ship Soyuz MS-15.
Soyuz MS-15 is a spaceflight launched on 25 September 2019.
It transported two members of the Expedition 61 crew and a short duration visiting crew member to the ISS.
It is the last flight of Soyuz-FG launcher before its replacement by the Soyuz-2 in the crewed spaceflight role.
The crew consisted of a Russian commander, an American flight engineer, and the first Emirati astronaut.
To celebrate this event, pictures of the Soyuz launcher and of Al Mansouri were projected on Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.
On September 25, 2019, Al Mansouri was launched aboard the Soyuz MS-15 spacecraft to merge with the ISS.
He landed safely in Kazakhstan after eight days in the space, on October 3, 2019, aboard Soyuz MS-12.
He stated that he proudly returned to earth after that short travel into space.
ISS is a space station (habitable artificial satellite) in low Earth orbit. The program of the station is a joint project between five participating space agencies: NASA (United States), Roscosmos (Russia), JAXA (Japan), ESA (Europe), and CSA (Canada.
The ownership and use of the space station are established by intergovernmental treaties and agreements.
It serves as a microgravity and space environment research laboratory in which crew members conduct experiments in biology, human biology, physics, astronomy, meteorology, and other fields.
The station is suited for the testing of spacecraft systems and equipment required for missions to the Moon and Mars.
The ISS maintains an orbit with an average altitude of 400 km (250 mi) by means of re-boost maneuvers using the engines of the Zvezda module or visiting spacecraft.
It circles the Earth in roughly 92 minutes and completes 15.5 orbits per day.
