Came across this cool video of a little experiment aboard the ISS where they made a drinking cup that was shaped to both contain the fluid and wick it up to the edge where it could be sipped out. No more squeeze bottles!

That's really interesting! The proof of the coffee cup is in the drinking, and judging by the video this cup works pretty well.

I like the satisfied expression of the astronaut in the video. Looks like the expression of somebody who knows they have a really elegant solution to a problem.

This is going to make it a whole lot easier to have wild parties on the ISS
