How freaking cute is this?! NASA, CASIS (The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space), and Marvel Customs teamed up for an official badge that features Rocket Racoon and Groot! This isn’t just some random promotional image. Staff members of the International Space Stations’ National Laboratory will receive these badges to proudly display on their uniforms.
Juan Doe is the artist behind this badge and I know covet one. Does the International Space Station’s National Laboratory have any job openings? I could write some out of this world copy for you and of course, that pun was intended.
Marvel released a video explaining the project, their reasons for picking Rocket Racoon and Groot, and a future STEM initiative.
