The Beagle has landed!

The Peanuts comic strip beagle took flight in real life on Thursday (Nov. 28), as a new, NASA-inspired giant balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and as a plush doll floating aboard the orbiting laboratory. NASA crew members Jessica Meir and Christina Koch from on board the space station revealed the Astronaut Snoopy doll in a video shown as part of NBC’s television coverage of the holiday celebration.

“Snoopy has been along for space rides since the Apollo era. Today, he’s floating in the Macy’s parade and here in space,” said Meir during the NBC broadcast.

Both the 49-foot-tall (15-meter) helium balloon and 8-inch-tall (20-centimeter) fabric doll sported bright orange spacesuits with the NASA insignia, red-soled boots and bubble helmet, as modeled after NASA’s Orion Crew Survival System to be worn by astronauts on future Artemis missions to the moon and Mars.
