The puppets are of real people from the TMRO Space webcast. At the end of each live show, there is a section which doesn’t get included in the edited version, where they interact with viewers.
Yesterday seemed like a good time for me to send them a picture of the puppets. To my relief, they recognised all 12 of the puppets and seemed quite pleased with them.
The presenters were all very excited and several of them immediately changed their Twitter avatars to the puppet version of themselves.
They then asked for some close up pictures

The webcast was a live broadcast. Hopefully they will eventually publish it to be viewed again.
