Groot and Rocket Raccoon are Headed to the ISS

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.

Nick Izumi is, for all intents and purposes, a human being. We’ve checked repeatedly, and they continue to assure us this is true. Nick is the cofounder and former staffer of the Wisconsin Anime Convention “Daisho Con,” and occasionally smells like flour and memories of your forgotten youth. They also created and star in a series of reviews on YouTube called "The Nick Izumi Show." You should watch it.
