SpaceX successfully launches Crew-1 into space, Baby Yoda is their zero-G


All over the world, the astronauts and a free-floating Baby Yoda are seen in live shots as they head to the ISS.  

Past flights also had some cute and cuddly zero-G indicators on their trips. In May, NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley brought a stuffed dinosaur named Tremor, which was chosen by their sons.

While pointing skyward, Baby Yoda said, “This is the way!”
