On May 31st, Elon Musk and SpaceX have gone down in history as the first private company in the world to send humans successfully on Earth’s orbit aboard the Crew Dragon.. Two NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken have been trusted in this noble mission. But soon, netizens shed more light on the “third member” who also participated in the important trip of SpaceX: It was a sparkling stuffed animal.
“Third member” has quickly revealed on the Crew Dragon and is making netizens crazy because of his cuteness.
While the world press often refers to Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken with SpaceX’s historic moment, the online community seems to be more interested in this stuffed dinosaur than most. No one has denied the talents and merits of the duo, and it is clear that they were able to go to space in the ship built by SpaceX is a brilliant achievement. However, we do not always see a fake dinosaur in the universe, and that’s why it causes such fever.
As soon as it fell into a state of zero gravity, the dinosaur immediately got out of the seats of the two astronauts and floated, slowly approaching the camera’s lens. This creates an effect that makes the camera proactively zoom into it, making it take up the spotlight in the video above – it currently records 1.2 million views on Twitter and thousands of comments.
Baby dinosaur signaled this state of gravity does not cut my heart already.
This dinosaur is not a toy. It is a guide map for the astronauts.
What I like most about this rocket launch is that the glittering dinosaur went into space before almost all humanity.
Earlier, physicist Mika McKinnon discovered this stuffed dinosaur (which she thought was a dragon) on May 28 – the time when SpaceX was about to launch its ship into space but was forced to postpone the schedule due to the weather. Mika said the dinosaur, named Tremor Dinosaur, belongs to the TY Flippables toy collection. The characteristic characteristics of this brand are sparkling products that can change color when flipped to other angles of the body. In the case of the dinosaur above, in the video it was dark blue, but when turned upside down it would be pink.
Currently, TY Flippables has stopped producing the Tremor Dinosaur, and the only way you can own it is to buy second-hand goods or look at retail stores. Currently, there are still some platforms offering this item, for example Joann Fabric (sold at US $ 7.49 / head), Learning Express (9.99 USD / pig), Michaels (US $ 11.99 / pig) and Barnesandnoble (14.99 USD / pig).

If you are interested in aerospace, you certainly know that this is not the first time astronauts bring stuffed animals on their journey. Not only decorative or entertaining, they also perform many functions that you might not expect. In particular, the most important task is to announce when the spacecraft fell into zero gravity (by hovering off the seat like a dinosaur on Crew Dragon did). ).
These stuffed animals are often referred to as devices that report zero gravity on the spacecraft.
