Shaun the Sheep to Make History as Co-Pilot on 2024 Moon Mission with 100-Year-Old Gertrude Miller

Beloved Animated Character Tapped for Unparalleled Problem-Solving Skills on Groundbreaking Lunar Expedition

In a surprising move, the space agency has announced that Gertrude Miller, a 100-year-old woman, will be leading the first manned mission to the moon in 2024. But even more surprising is her co-pilot – none other than Shaun the Sheep.

Shaun, a beloved animated character, is best known for his antics on the farm and his ability to outsmart the farmer. However, he has recently been recruited by the space agency for his unparalleled problem-solving skills.

“Shaun is the perfect addition to our team,” said a spokesperson for the space agency. “He’s proven time and time again that he can think outside the box and come up with creative solutions to any challenge. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a sheep in a spacesuit?”

Gertrude, who has been training for the mission for months, expressed excitement at the prospect of working with Shaun. “I’ve always been a fan of Shaun’s,” she said. “I think he’s going to be a great asset to our team. And who knows, maybe he’ll teach me a thing or two about problem-solving.”

Despite concerns from some members of the public about the safety of sending a 100-year-old woman and a sheep to the moon, the space agency is confident that the mission will be a success.

“We’ve taken every precaution to ensure the safety of our crew,” the spokesperson said. “And let’s not forget, Gertrude is a seasoned astronaut. She’s been to space before, so this is just another adventure for her.”

As for Shaun, he seems to be taking his new role in stride. “Baa!” he said, when asked for comment.
