In the last couple years NASA has been trying to reach out to the public with pop culture references, so maybe it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) has teamed up with Marvel for a next International Space Station Mission patch. This upcoming embroidery will feature two of the comic publishing giant’s most beloved space-faring characters.
That’s right, Groot and (a shockingly adorable) Rocket Raccoon are on this, frankly, fantastic patch.
Honestly, this is a great idea. NASA is pretty dependent on public good will for support and this should is a pretty great way to get that.
