"We have a fifth crew member and he can actually fly!" announced Hoshide. "It is a penguin that our boys chose and his name is 'GuinGuin.' Welcome GuinGuin to space!"

The 7-inch-tall (18-cm) gray and white plush penguin toy is the Crew-2 mission's "zero-g indicator." When Endeavour reached orbit about nine minutes after leaving the ground at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, GuinGuin began to float, providing a visual clue that the astronauts were now in the weightless environment of outer space.
