You see, after the Endgame trailer hit the airwaves late last week, Iron Mans fate has been all but revealed in a grim scene.
The trailer begins with Tony leaving a message for Pepper Potts, telling her part of the journey is the end as he detailed his lack of food and air. Which is handy in living.
So, naturally, it was up to the space agency to shoot up there, or just swing by in the International Space Station, and give Tony a lift back to earth, right?
While punters pleas went unanswered up to this point, now NASA has responded. But dont get your hopes up, fam.
In the tongue-in-cheek comment posted to Twitter they asked Marvel to listen out for his beacon call that he had a problem (um, already pretty obvious), before doing anything.
However, with his helmet perhaps not strong enough to beam that message back down to earth, NASA suggested the Avengers and teams on the ground mobilise to scan the skies (in all galaxies, we hope) for the wayward astronaut.
Theyre surely doing that. What kind of advice is this?!
Hey @Marvel, we heard about Tony Stark, their message on Twitter began on Sunday night. As we know, the first thing you should do is listen in mission control for “@Avengers, we have a problem.”
But if he cant communicate, then we recommend ground teams use all resources to scan the skies for your missing man.

Fans felt NASA may be too late though, as they responded to the organisation, who, we must add, are doing absolutely nothing to help.
One wrote: Thank you so much for your suggestion NASA, we will try our best to save Mr.Stark, but right now Im not sure hes still alive or not because the oxygen ran out yesterday lol this is hilarious I almost split the Pepsi lol.
This is no laughing matter.
Others loved NASA seemed to care more about the Avengers safety more so than Marvel – even though, again, they basically just asked Marvel to help find the cosmic traveller.
Another added: Omg nasa!!! You do understand how important Tony Stark is!!! This might be the coolest tweet Ive ever seen!!! Find himmmm. Please!!!
We still have a while to wait to see how Tony was saved from space (cmon, dont kill off Iron Man, thats not cool). But, the lols are keeping us warm in the meantime.
Avengers: Endgame is in cinemas 26 April 2019.
