After the Avengers: Endgame trailer dropped, fans began tweeting at NASA to rescue Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark from the depths of space. Well, the real-world space organization has responded by offering Marvel Studios advice on how to get the Avenger safely home.
"Hey @Marvel, we heard about Tony Stark," NASA tweeted. "As we know, the first thing you should do is listen in mission control for "@Avengers, we have a problem." But if he can't communicate, then we recommend ground teams use all resources to scan the skies for your missing man."

It's definitely welcome advice and shows NASA's sense of humor, as well as its willingness to acknowledge the tragic events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course, you can't blame them for responding as the trailer broke the record for most views in one day, teasing what's to come as the world recovers in the wake of Infinity War.
While NASA may not be able to extend its reach to the big screen and save Iron Man, we do have an idea who might be able to do so as Earth's Mightiest Heroes regroup for a round two with the Mad Titan, Thanos, next year.
