Mankind Has Created a Dinosaur in Space. Game Over.

God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates dinosaurs. Dinosaurs eat man. Woman inherits the earth.

And thus did Jurassic Park, the oracle of our time, predict this adorable dinosaur crafted by astronaut and International Space Station flight engineer Karen Nyberg. She made the plush T-rex for her young son using random materials scrounged from the station, specifically, “velcro-like fabric that lines the Russian food containers [that are] found here on the International Space Station. It is lightly stuffed with scraps from a used t-shirt.”
