The last time we saw Tony Stark, he was adrift in space in the Avengers: Endgame trailer, and it didn’t look like survival was likely.
Luckily, the folks at NASA heard about Iron Man’s plight and had some advice to offer for the rest of the Avengers who were still alive on Earth.
Hey @Marvel, we heard about Tony Stark. 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 pic.twitter.com/zavXrsPljq

The NASA tweet suggested, of course, to listen for a distress call from Stark that mirrors NASA’s infamous “Houston, we have a problem” phrase.
But since it seems like Stark, who has run out of food and water and is almost out of oxygen, doesn’t have an operable communications device (at least not one that can reach Earth), NASA said that the Avengers who are on the ground should use all their resources to scan the skies for Iron Man.
Unfortunately, the Avengers are a little short-staffed after the Snappening at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. Based on the trailer, it looks like only a handful of superheroes are available: Captain America, Black Widow, The Hulk, Thor, Nebula, and Ant-Man.
Hopefully Bruce Banner can use his genius to help find Stark, or maybe Thor will be able to fly out into space to help him once they locate him.
In fact, check out this zoomed-in look at NASA’s photo, shared by a sharp-eyed Twitter user.
It looks like Thor is already on the case.
