Buzz Lightyear and Magellan T. Bear in Space
Mark Avino, Smithsonian

Two space travelers share a locker in the mockup Space Shuttle Discovery mid-deck on display in the Moving Beyond Earth exhibition at the Museum in Washington, DC. In 2008, Buzz Lightyear flew on Space Shuttle Discovery STS-124 to the International Space Station and returned on Discovery 15 months later with STS-128. The 12-inch action figure is the longest-serving toy in space. Magellan T. Bear became the first official teddy bear in space, flying as the "education specialist" aboard Space Shuttle Discovery on the STS-63 mission in February 1995.
