A dinosaur is floating around the International Space Station.  NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg, a flight engineer orbiting the Earth since May, stitched together the olive green toy, the first stuffed animal created in space, in her spare time.  She made the toy giant lizard from the Velcro-like fabric that lines the Russian food containers found on the space station, and stuffed it with scraps from a used T-shirt.
