“Baby Yoda” Travels in Space with SpaceX Crew

On Sunday, November 15, a historic space launch took place at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Four astronauts were sent into space for SpaceX’s first operational crewed mission for NASA. But wait – as if this isn’t cool enough… The Child (aka “Baby Yoda”) is traveling in space with the crew!



As shared by CollectSpace: A few hours after launching to the International Space Station on Sunday (Nov. 15), the Crew-1 astronauts showed off their fifth crew member — a small plush doll of “The Child.”

“And as you can see live, they have now revealed to us the zero-g indicator and it looks like a little baby Yoda!” said SpaceX engineer Jessica Anderson, describing the doll as she provided live mission commentary on NASA TV.

Hopkins, Glover, Walker and Noguchi were just beginning a 27-hour rendezvous with the space station when they displayed The Child on board the “Resilience,” the name they gave their Crew Dragon spacecraft. “Baby Yoda says you guys can come back on board,” said Glover, giving the flight controllers permission to turn on the cameras aboard the capsule.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and runDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways, and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. There isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 18 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family, we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
