NASA Launches Portal 2 Character Into Space

An anonymous NASA employee has added a little customization to a panel for the International Space Station, adding an image of the Space Core from Portal 2.

The part was sent up to the station on Friday, aboard a Japanese resupply craft, and features the cheeky chappy with the catchphrase “In spaaaaaaace!” printed underneath. “Please note that when we mentioned an ‘anonymous tech at NASA’ we weren’t kidding: NASA in no way officially endorses secretly laser-engraving characters from Portal onto their spacecraft,” reads a post on the official Portal 2 blog.

Space Core hitched a ride on the Japanese HTV-3 resupply mission.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
