Baby Yoda's Important Role on NASA-SpaceX Mission

You've probably heard by now that a very special little plush toy likeness of The Child from The Mandalorian made an appearance on the recent successful joint mission to send astronauts to the International Space Station from U.S. soil. The toy figure was used as the Crew-1 flight team's "zero G indicator". 

Any small object will do for this purpose, but using a cultural icon makes it more fun.

Earlier this year, the crew of Demo-2, Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, used a plush dragon chosen by their sons to be their zero G indicator.
