Gli astronauti hanno portato Baby Yoda con loro nello spazio

Baby Yoda è diventato astronauta onorario durante il fine settimana.

Una versione in peluche della creatura — which stole people’s hearts in Disney+’s Star Wars seriesIl Mandaloriano” — can be seen in a live stream from inside SpaceX’s Crew Dragon.
Nel video, Baby Yoda is spotted bouncing around alongside astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker and Soichi Noguchi. The four astronauts on Sunday became part the second-ever crewed flight of a SpaceX spacecraft. The first Crew Dragon to launch humans, which was still considered a test mission, took off in May.
It’s not the first time SpaceX astronauts have brought a plush friend with them on board. Such objects are often used as chosen zero-gravity indicators, according to The Verge.
    In March of 2019, Elon MuskSpaceX CEOtweeted an image of a test launch featuring an Terra-shaped toy.
    Super high tech zero-g indicator added just before launch!” he wrote in the tweet, adding in a response to another user that the plush toy wasgoing to float around in zero gravity.
    A maggio 2020, astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley also brought a toy with them on board: A stuffed dinosaur, The Verge reported.
      SpaceX did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment regarding Baby Yoda’s presence on the spacecraft.
      Baby Yoda and the crew are expected to dock with the ISS around 11 p.m. ET on Monday, after a 27-hour journey.
