Spacecraft Carrying Maine Astronaut to Stop at New Hampshire Liquor Store on Trip to International Space Station

New Hampshire/Maine Border – The first woman Mainer in space, Jessica Meir, will spend 6 months aboard the International Space Station, which means a quick stop across the border to visit the New Hampshire State Liquor store first.

“This is an historic moment for Maine, and Meir is holding fast to tradition by stocking up on tax-free booze on the first leg of the trip,” said a spokesperson for NASA.

The 42-year old Meir, who has dreamed of being an astronaut since childhood, is co-piloting a Soyuz MS-15 spacecraft launching from Kazakhstan.

“Meir has already marked out the path from Kazakhstan to the liquor store on the ship’s GPS, but has a copy of the DeLormes Gazetteer just in case,” NASA said.

The stop at the New Hampshire liquor store on the way to the ISS is timed perfectly “for a pee break,” since the ship will continue non-stop to its destination.

“The crew knows this is more than just a chance to fill the cargo hold with half-gallons of Fireball and Allens, it’s also a chance to use the facilities,” NASA said.

“Once the ship gets over Mass, hell if it plans on stopping until it gets to space.”

Meir may also grab a few scratchers while across the border, as NASA sources claim they’re “luckier over there because they want you to spend more on booze.”
