A blue and pink sequined dinosaur floated on board SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule after the spacecraft reached Earth orbit on May 30, 2020 on the Demo-2 mission. Demo-2 carried NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley up to the International Space Station, where they will live for the next few months. The dinosaur toy, which was chosen by the sons of Behnken and Hurley, served as the mission’s zero-g indicator.
