image for Charles Simonyi; Fifth Tourist in Space, Space Gets a Starbucks
That's one small cuppa for man... one giant leap for business

Despite space's obvious appeal and dazzling views, it has had trouble attracting tourists. Charles Simonyi, billionaire software designer and the less famous husband of Martha Stewart, is trying to change that as he has just become the fifth space tourist.

Of course with the news that tourists are finding there way into space, Starbucks has leapt at the opportunity to monopolize the coffee business in orbit by creating it's first store on the international space station.

Starbucks have already come up with a slogan.

'In the cold, dark reaches of space you need a hot, white latte.'
