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.'

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
