For this week’s blog, I’m going to introduce you to the Dregin Empire, but I feel like I should be clear on one thing: when they say “nice to meet you,” they mean M-E-A-T. The Drengin are one of the galaxy’s older civilizations and they are famous for their depraved - and disturbingly creative - cruelty.

Two torsos, nicknamed Helga and Zohar, are bound for the Moon aboard the Orion capsule in order to measure radiation risks for female astronauts for the first time.The mannequins are modeled after the body of an adult woman and one of them is outfitted with a newly developed radiation vest. For the Artemis 1 mission, the un-crewed Orion capsule will travel to the Moon and back in order to test radiation safety and collect data about flight accelerations and vibrations.

I love Star Wars. If you know me, you're rolling your eyes right now and thinking "well there's a big shocker, Kristy." If you don't know me, you're probably either like "Oh, that's nice," or "NEEERDDDD" - frankly, both sentiments are valid. Prior to the pandemic, I brought in themed treats for May the 4th every year. Each time, I would raise the bar and see if I could top what I did the year previous. I may have gone a bit overboard in doing so this year - but in my defense...
