I, for one, welcome our Space Dinosaur overlords.  I'd like to remind them that as a trusted TV personality I could be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground meat caves!

I like my stuffed dinasours made the American way. Sewn together in a Chinease sweat shop by a nine year old on a 12 hour shift. The tears add extra freedom.

"materials she found on the ISS".... what kind of unkempt crappy space station is this that there are craft supplies to salvage just lying around like a stellar Craft Barn or something? ...anyways I'm sure that green felt like fabric had some essential purpose and they're all doomed now

Sadly, when she returns her kid will only be allowed to play with the toy for a few minutes until it (and his "for mommy" painting that she put up in her sleeping quarters) will be packed away in hermetically sealed, nitrogen charged, uv-shielded display cases to accrue massive collector's item value.  If he's lucky, he can auction off his childhood nostalgia for enough to pay for his kids' college educations.

IN other news.... NASA's budget has declined to the point where NASA has been forced to convert the ISS into a piecework sweatshop. Astronauts will sew toys and other handiwork that will be sold in the giftshops at NASA facilities. Revenue will go towards paying the Russian's cost to return the Astronauts to Earth.

It costs anywhere from $2k to $9k per kilo to put something in low Earth orbit. At that price you do not waste anything.

There's not a huge collector's market for trinkets from the ISS (or Shuttle era) stuff, given that hundreds of people have flown on it. You can get a "flown in space" medallion on ebay for $20. I really doubt this would ever sell for big money.

FTFA ""It is made out of velcro-like fabric that lines the Russian food containers [that are] found here on the International Space Station," Nyberg wrote about the doll. "It is lightly stuffed with scraps from a used t-shirt."

Wash would approve of playing with toy dinosaurs in space.

Her previous Internet fame was from a video of what it takes to wash her hair in space.

You sure you don't want to call a buddy who's an expert on stuff flown in space?

Buddy: It's probably worth about 10,000 dollars
Pawn Star: Okay, I'll give you $3.50 for it.

That kid has not one but two parents that are astronauts.

Also, the couple of hundred bucks it cost to take her crafting stuff to orbit is probably worth it in astronaut happiness and general stress relief.

I was going to say they set the bar a little high there didn't they

/take your kid to work day would be awesome!

/Mom or dad is on a business trip would suck.

That's pretty cool. She'd have to keep very close track of her equipment. A needle lost in zero G would have the potential to do a bit of damage. If not to the space station, it would suck to get one in the eye.

She sounds like a great mom. Even away from he son she sends videos every day. Dad does the same. Looks like a good family even with absences and stress. Kudos to them.

/love the flying dino

While mom is in space I'll take the kid to the movies this weekend.
I'll even pay for the popcorn and 3D glasses!
