  1. NASA Report Now Says Private Human Spaceflight May Raise ISS Costs

    This is why we can't have nice things.

    NASA was pretty pumped about their decision to award Boeing and SpaceX with contracts to bring human spaceflight back to the U.S., but a new internal audit shows they might not want to get over the Moon about it just yet.

Italy wants to fix that, so they're sending an espresso machine to space.
