'Star Wars' Fans Notice An Adorable Addition To The New Space Station Crew

It's as if millions of voices suddenly cried out, "Aww!"

This is the way ... to the International Space Station.

Eagle-eyed “Star Wars” fans spotted an adorable addition to the crew that launched into space on Sunday: The Child, better known as Baby Yoda.

SpaceX has a history of using adorable zero-gravity indicators, including a plush anthropomorphic Earth last year and a stuffed dinosaur during the company’s first crewed launch earlier this year.

The Crew Dragon capsule is set to dock with the ISS on Monday.
