SpaceX brought a Baby Yoda doll for its Crew Dragon’s space mission launched last Sunday.

Used as the mission’s ‘zero-gravity indicator’, the doll confirmed the spaceship is orbiting in a microgravity environment.

As soon as SpaceX’s Crew Dragon separated from its Falcon 9 rocket, Baby Yoda started bouncing around the cockpit

While the four astronauts safely strapped in en route International Space Station (ISS) late Monday.

It’s not the first time that a popular character stuffed toy like “yoda” has been used to identify zero gravity on SpaceX’s missions.

An Earth plushie, stuffed dinosaur, and a Snoopy doll flew onboard during test flights in the past.

However, some Star Wars fanatics have critiqued the character for allegedly committing genocide in The Mandalorian.

Fortunately, many Mando viewers found SpaceX’s antics funny, including Clerks director Kevin Smith.

He tweeted; “Me trying to explain to my kid, that Baby Yoda eating those eggs isn’t cute, it’s genocide,” referring to the series’ 10th Chapter.

Sunday’s mission marked NASA’s first collaborative flight with Crew Dragon, with NASA’s Victor Glover, Michael Hopkins, and Shannon Walker.

The operations also include Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s Soichi Noguchi. 

The foursome arrives late Monday at the ISS and will remain there for six months.
