Caramel is the zero-G indicator of AX-1 mission to the International Space Station!

The private astronauts aboard Axiom Space’s Ax-1 mission to the International Space Station (ISS) are now back on Earth. During the mission, they used a unique, ‘high-tech’ tool to gauge the moment the spacecraft escapes gravity’s bond. Caramel, the mascot of The Children’s Foundation was the mission’s adorable zero-gravity or zero-G indicator. Caramel joined a prestigious group of zero-G indicators, including Snoopy, Buzz Light Year, Smokey Bear and Olaf from Frozen.
