The new release of "The Big Bang Theory" Season 6 on DVD has a couple of special features to tie into Howard's ISS mission:
  • The Big Bang Theory: The Final Comedy Frontier which has interviews with Mike Massimino and Buzz Aldrin.

  • Houston, We Have A Sit-Com: has Mike Massimino setting up a surprise Skype chat with Astronaut Joe Acaba on board ISS with the cast. Apparently, Joe is a big fan of the show.
I enjoyed both of the special features.

Mike Massimino tweeted today (Jan. 29):
I had another great experience doing a cameo for The Big Bang Theory sitcom, they always make me feel like I'm part of their family.
(He taped his cameo on Jan. 27 but no details yet as to when it will air.)

Does this mean that Froot Loops will be asked to return to the ISS?

I would say that'd be impossible after how he handled being in space the first time, but in reality, nobody as annoying as Sheldon never would have survived as long as he has...

Mike Massimino's next cameo on The Big Bang Theory will be in the episode "The Table Polarization" airing Feb. 27, 2014. Warning: Spoilers ahead — 
Wolowitz is offered a chance to go back to space and Bernadette struggles with whether or not to encourage him.

I'm surprised nobody commented on the episode.

It seemed unrealistic to me that he'd be asked to go back to the ISS to anything, I'd assume the debrief of his experience would have caused the folks at JSC to break out the large, "THE END" rubber stamp for his documentation with their office. For crying out loud, Mass told Howard he shouldn't go back, wouldn't he be telling the people at Houston that, as well?

Did anyone see the portrait of Howard in the background during the 'intervention' of him wearing a Sokol suit? Nice touch.

So, you are putting rational thought about a situation in a TV show that tends to like doing goofy and nutty things to its characters? If it gets ratings, the producers might indeed send "Fruit Loops" back up. Or, it could set the stage for sending one of the others up (doubtful, but you never know with these things). I know the ISS episodes had me watching the show more than I normally would have, so there is method to their madness.

Besides, wouldn't it be cool if Howard was to accept another assignment to the ISS and then have some crazy dream before he flies where he is stuck inside a Soyuz during some critical emergency with Sandra Bullock from Gravity sitting next to him going "No no no no NO, NOT GOOD!"?

Cryptozoic Entertainment's "The Big Bang Theory" Season 5 trading cards include two cards related to Wolowitz's space mission:
Card 64 as part of the base set is titled "Howard's Mission."

Howard is in the space capsule ready for launch, reflecting back on his life. The gang is at Leonard and Sheldon's apartment to watch the launch.

Insert card M25 is one of two "authentic wardrobe" cards related to Howard Wolowitz and depicts him wearing his Sokol suit.

This card features an authentic piece of Howard Wolowitz wardrobe from Season 5 of The Big Bang Theory.

(There's nothing to say the material comes from the Sokol suit.)

There is no word yet on when the Season 6 trading cards may be released, but Mike Massimino shared that he had to turn down a request from Cryptozoic to sign cards for the autographed inserts.
