  • Marvel’s Rocket Raccoon and Groot both have a One Way Ticket to the ISS

It is being said that Marvel’s Rocket Raccoon and Groot both have a one way ticket to the ISS. It will be fun to watch them reach their destination.

Rocket Raccoon and Groot are going places. The two Marvel characters will reach the ISS soon. They rank high among the Guardians of the Galaxy list of characters.

Rocket Raccoon is a talkative fuzzy wuzzy raccoon while Groot is a tree-like creature that is animated. The payloads that will get launched for the ISS will be under the rubric of Rocket Raccoon and Groot. 

It was a source of great excitement to be doing something for the ISS. The astronaut patch that was made will come in handy since it shows both Rocket Raccoon and Groot. Marvel’s characters are excellent sources of motivation.

CASIS deals with the US National Lab under the stipulations of a contract from NASA. This non-profit organization announced the funky patch featuring Rocket Raccoon and Groot. The venue for this announcement was the San Diego Comic-Con. 

One of the big goals of the people at CASIS has always been to promote singular methods of creating a spirit of notoriety for the ISS. There is a scarcity of brands that represent fun and funkiness in the true adventurist sense of the word.

Rocket Raccoon and Groot are two characters that will go a long way in fulfilling the quest for the unknown. It is a thrill to partner with Comic-Con and have these characters on board NASA’s space enterprise.

Both Rocket Raccoon and Groot will serve as the inspirational sources for future astronauts who want to experiment and carry out research on board the ISS. 

“A major mission for us here at CASIS is to find unique and innovative ways to bring notoriety to the ISS National Laboratory and the research that is being conducted on our orbiting laboratory,” said CASIS Director of Operations and Educational Opportunities Ken Shields.

“There are very few brands in the world who have as large an impact as Marvel, and we are thrilled to partner with them on this project and look forward to Rocket and Groot inspiring a new generation of researchers interested in the space station.”

The red, blue and white patch has the colors of the US flag and represents Rocket Raccoon perched on the shoulder of Groot. The two can be seen looking up towards the ISS. While this is the fourth such badge that has been designed especially for CASIS, it is the first to show Marvel characters.

This Rocket and Groot patch was designed by Juan Doe. He is an artist with a difference. He has also sketched some really fine designs in the past. The man is the right sort of guy for this kind of job. He has drawn very subtle things on the patch. This shows his level of engagement and energy.
