Have you ever gazed up at the night sky and wanted to look down on planet Earth from outer space? Us too. And while the sad truth is that most of us will never become astronauts, we can now look at what they see with the augmented reality NASA Space Mug.

That's because this out-of-this-world cup can be paired with a special app to show you stunning views from the International Space Station. Simply point your phone over the top of the mug to see hi-res satellite photos taken from data provided by NASA and the United States Geological Survey (USGS). It's a step up from even the best travel mugs.
