The Spacebat Memorial

A lot of people know that a bat was clinging to Discovery’s external tank when it lifted off.  There is now a Space Bat Memorial Page filled with tributes, including the following Youtube video.

There is a store where you can buy Space Bat merchandise.

This little guy reminds me of the whale in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.  A creature that really doesn’t play a part in the plot but kind of captures your heart in a weird way.  RIP Space Bat.
