Astronaut Creates Toy Dinosaur for Her Son Using Materials Found on the Space Station

Astronaut and aspiring crafter Karen Nyberg, who since May has been working as a flight engineer aboard the International Space Station, has created a stuffed toy dinosaur for her son using the velcro-like fabric that lines the Russian food containers found on the ISS and stuffing made from an old t-shirt. Nyberg posted a photo of the finished dinosaur floating in zero gravity on her Pinterest account with a caption that says, "Made in space! I made this dinosaur for my son last Sunday, September 22."
