Stuffed dinosaur toy sent into space on board SpaceX's Crew Dragon spacecraft

A sequined stuffed dinosaur toy has been sent into space aboard SpaceX's Crew Dragon spacecraft carrying NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to the International Space Station. Called "Tremor", the toy was picked out from their sons' toy collections. When the toy starts floating, it lets the buckled-in astronauts know that they've reached zero gravity and are experiencing weightlessness.
