Shaun the sheep doll flying on NASA’s Artemis 1 moon mission

A popular stop-motion sheep is about to go from Mossy Bottom Farm to the moon.

Shaun, the title character from the animated television series “Shaun the Sheep,” has been assigned a space on NASA’s Artemis 1 mission, targeted for launch later this month. The unusually clever Shropshire lamb — in plush doll form — will fly well beyond the moon on NASA’s uncrewed Orion spacecraft prior to returning to Earth in a little over a month’s time.
