On May 30th, history was made when SpaceX and Crew Dragon launched from Florida. What was originally thought to be a two man crew actually was a three man crew thanks to the discovery of a "stowaway".

It was not just Doug and I who accomplished the launch here, we do have an Apatosaurus aboard.

 

Astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley decided, with the help of both of their sons, to bring along the stuffed Apatosaurus on their journey to the ISS. But why a dinosaur? Well, according to What's Trending, both astronauts' sons are huge fans of dinosaurs!  A meeting was held between both family and a plethora of dinos were brought together to decide who was going to make the trip with their dad's.

We collected up all the dinosaurs between our two houses and ‘Tremor,’ the Apatosaurus, got the vote from the boys to make the trip into space today with us
