NASA offers Marvel advice on how to save lost-in-space Avenger Tony Stark
By Georgina Vincent on Tuesday, December 11, 2018
In the new trailer for the highly anticipated fourth Avengers film we see a despondent Tony Stark, AKA Iron Man, lost in space with food and oxygen rapidly running out.
Although fans will have to wait until April 2019 to find out what happens to Tony, NASA have weighed in on twitter to offer their expertise on the subject and have suggested a few potential methods of saving the wayward Avenger.
Hey @Marvel, we heard about Tony Stark. As we know, the first thing you should do is listen in mission control for “@Avengers, we have a problem.” But if he can’t communicate, then we recommend ground teams use all resources to scan the skies for your missing man pic.twitter.com/zavXrsPljq

The reactive tweet has already seen over a whopping 200K likes and 130K retweets since being posted yesterday.
Eagle eyed fans have even spotted a further Easter Egg in the accompanying picture as one of the stations in NASA’s HQ is labelled with Thor’s name along with a tiny replica of his (now destroyed) hammer Mjolnir.
