Watch as Gnome Chomsky gets launched into space by Rocket Lab. While this payload would not not have paid for itself, I’m sure it was fun and satisfying to complete a challenge from the game Half Life 2.
In addition, some real mission boxes also got ticked when Rocket Lab launched 30 small satellites into orbit at the same time as completing a game challenge.
This is another in a long line of publicity stunts carried out by the crew which saw them take Baby Yoda into space as well. Personally I’d pay real money if they launched a few of the Kardashian’s into orbit instead, now that’s something I’d like to see.
