My dream from childhood is to go to space.
You have heard that the Japanese billionaire of Zozotown, Yusaku Maezawa has been sharing videos of himself carrying out various activities in the 12 days he and his assistant Yozo Hirano spent onboard the International Space Station (ISS).
Armed with a list of "100 Things You Want MZ (Maezawa) to Do in Space," the two men lifted off onboard the Soyuz MS-20, a Russian spaceflight, on December 8, 2021. This visit to the ISS was done in preparation for Maezawa's flyby around the moon onboard a SpaceX. This planned adventure will make Maezawa the first commercial passenger to go on a circumlunar flight.
One of the listed tasks for Maezawa to perform is to have afternoon tea in space. As expected, the process isn't quite as straightforward as pouring oneself a cuppa. Maezawa and Hirano were living with other astronauts on the ISS, so they had to make sure that they followed safe space-living protocols to avoid issues. In terms of preparing and enjoying afternoon tea, the steps are detailed below. But, first, here are some observations:
Please note that Maezawa prepared his drink following the Russian module, which is different from the US module. Picking sugar-free black tea and some cookies, this is how he proceeded to make himself afternoon tea.
And here is the video of it! I hope in our lifetime you and I can do this too!
Space is said to be the next frontier. While not many of us give much credence to the notion, neither can we deny that the idea of humans one day making space an extension of their realm is becoming increasingly feasible. With consistent technological advancements, it's very possible that more and more people may eventually be able to experience afternoon tea in space.
