17 Apollo Missions Paved the Way for This Space Capsule Tea Infuser

By Andrew Liszewski on at

We don’t have a moon colony yet and the space station isn’t exactly tourist-ready, but if you needed one good reason why those 17 Apollo missions were worth every last penny, it’s that they inspired this wonderful space capsule tea infuser.

The perforated capsule holds your tea grounds with a screw-off bottom so it’s easy to clean. And the tiny astronaut’s umbilical cord doesn’t provide oxygen or security, just a convenient way to remove the infuser from your mug once it’s done steeping. ThinkGeek’s got it for just $10 (£6.42), although there are rumours that the Russian’s have developed an even cheaper alternative. [ThinkGeek]
