Image of the day: NASA's new ISS patch features Groot and Rocket Raccoon

The latest NASA mission is set to feature two of Marvel’s coolest space heroes on the official International Space Station (ISS) patch, and put simply — we really, really want one.

 NASA has teamed up with Marvel and its Custom Solutions Group to develop a mission patch for the International Space Station (ISS) U.S. National Laboratory (Managed by CASIS) that features fan favorite Guardians of the Galaxy Rocket Raccoon and Groot. The mission patch will represent all of the ISS National Lab research payloads during the 2016 calendar year.

The artwork was handled by Juan Doe, and you can check out the patch here:
