NASA is known for being bad-asses who fly spaceships and satellites through space, landing rovers on distant planets, and occasionally being funny as hell on the internet. And after fans cry out for NASA to “Save Tony Stark” in the wake of the Avengers: Endgame trailer. NASA took to Twitter, tagging Marvel and Avengers with advice. Robert Downey Jr. replies and suddenly the trolls and bots on Twitter don’t matter. Few places on the internet can you find such wonderful, fun, entertaining interaction between government entities, entertainment companies, and celebrity actors.
The beginning of the Avengers: Endgame trailer features Tony Stark floating through space. He’s out of food and water. He’s nearly out of air. He leaves a recording for Pepper Potts that tugs on heartstrings. With no apparent life-line in sight, fans are worried about their favorite genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist. So what do you do when one of Earth’s mightiest heroes is in danger? You turn to the experts.
When I drift off, I will dream about this tweet.
