Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne is the company that works on rocket engine design for many NASA/JPL projects, they built the engines that powered Curiosity to Mars and you can bet that there were a few of these coffee mugs being nervously sipped by rocket scientists earlier this morning.
This is the official P&W mug and the phrase “I love the smell of rocket fuel in the morning” is emblazoned on the side, which is possibly the coolest thing you can have written on a mug. Or anything else for that matter.
Articles that Ben has written have been covered on CNN, Popular Mechanics, Smithsonian Magazine, Road & Track Magazine, the official Pinterest blog, the official eBay Motors blog, BuzzFeed, Autoweek Magazine, Wired Magazine, Autoblog, Gear Patrol, Jalopnik, The Verge, and many more.
