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.
