A Baby Yoda plush has been sent into space on a mission

  • Pandora has launched a ‘Star Wars’ collection that promises to drive the entire galaxy crazy
  • Baby Yoda is already the best-selling Funko doll in history

    The second season of ‘The Mandalorian’ landed a couple of weeks ago on Disney +, and since then the phenomenon and obsession with Baby Yoda it has suffered a significant rebound. The last thing, a stuffed animal of said character that was sent by the NASA this Tuesday to which is originally its natural habitat: the very space. The toy, as adorable as you remember it, has accompanied four crew members who were on board the capsule Crew Dragon, belonging to the SpaceX spacecraft, which landed this week on the International Space Station. There they prepare to spend a six-month season studying and experimenting with the environment, as well as taking space walks. And what better company than the protagonist of ‘Star Wars’.

    Far from being a joke – many have called it an unprecedented publicity move by Disney – the truth is that the alien’s presence was quite relevant to the mission. It is not the first time that an object of these characteristics travels from Cape Canaveral (Florida) to space, since scientists regularly use stuffed animals similar to this as some ‘zero gravity indicators’.

    What was Baby Yoda’s mission in space?

    This indicator, which sounds like a science fiction movie, alerts when the spacecraft has reached that state of zero gravity, when astronauts can unbuckle their seat belts and float freely through the capsule. Something that they noticed when Baby Yoda took off and was moved by the rocket. A mission that in 2019 faced another famous teddy that became the sensation of Christmas in the US: Earthy, a nice toy in the shape of planet Earth that was sent into space by the millionaire Elon Musk himself, who does not stitch without thread. As you might expect, this cosmic journey that the ‘The Mandalorian’ plush has made will translate into an exponential increase in its December sales.
