Someone spotted a great Thor Easter Egg in NASA’s response to fans who asked for their help in saving Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) from his fate teased in the Avengers: Endgame trailer.
Last week, the long-awaited trailer for Avengers: Endgame was released and it set up a morbid situation for Tony Stark. The Marvel Cinematic Universe hero is shown to be stranded in space, with oxygen running out, and it’s presumed that he’ll make it out alive but the trailer itself gives no hint at this. This caused MCU fans to start the movement #SaveTonyStark, which resulted in the NASA Twitter account receiving many requests for them to rescue Tony from his fate.
Eventually, NASA responded with a photo and a humorous Tweet. The fun didn’t end there though. One fan by the name of Darshan Baid, who goes by the handle @frunkad on Twitter, noticed something interesting in the background of the NASA photo. In the photo, there is an area in the room labeled “THOR” with a hammer laid down next to it. Check out the image in the Tweet below and as you can see in the post as well, NASA responded again.
The THermal Operations and Resource (THOR) officer is truly one of Mission Control’s mightiest heroes. They ensure the operation of multiple @Space_Station subsystems which collect, distribute & reject heat from critical equipment and payloads for the success of the mission

Thor (Chris Hemsworth) didn’t have much of a presence in the teaser for Avengers: Endgame outside of one moment but the Marvel icon certainly has a lot to think about. Not only did he lose his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) literally at the hands of Thanos (Josh Brolin), Thor then made it his one goal in Avengers: Infinity War to get a weapon powerful enough to kill the Mad Titan, which he accomplished. Unfortunately, Thor fumbled the execution of his plan and allowed Thanos to kill half of all life in the universe. This is going to give him a hefty weight to have on his shoulders when we meet him once again in Avengers: Endgame.
