Hello Kitty in space: Cute toy cat is circling Earth aboard Japanese satellite

Hello Kitty, Japan's famous feline toy, is now a cat-stronaut. Not only is the popular kitty orbiting the Earth inside a small satellite, but she is ready to beam messages from space for fans.

Images from Sanrio, the company responsible for the cute pop culture cat, show Hello Kitty in space clutching a toy while the Earth fills a small window in the background. The view of the planet below is real; Sanrio launched the Hello Kitty on the satellite Hodoyoshi 3 in June. A digital display positioned above the window will show greetings sent from Earth.

"Hello Kitty is standing by to deliver your messages from space!" reads a message on Sanrio's Hello Kitty website.
