RACCOONS IN THE NEWS: Rocketing to Space!


The annual San Diego Comic Convention is going on right now so there’s all kinds of nerdy news breaking. One thing caught my attention: the director of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, James Gunn, tweeted that NASA’s Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS,) who is responsible for managing operations of the International Space Station (ISS) would feature Rocket Raccoon and Groot on an upcoming mission patch! the patch will represent all payloads going to the ISS. A part of CASIS’s mission involves public outreach, and previous patches have been designed by celebrities such as Seth Green and artist Shepard Fairey to further that goal.
