STS-70 Mission Patch - Astronaut Don Thomas Collection
in stock
STS-70 Mission Insignia

A slightly larger format than the AB emblem, produced exclusively for this collection, with some colour variations too.

The STS-70 crew patch depicts the Space Shuttle Discovery orbiting Earth in the vast blackness of space. The primary mission of deploying a NASA Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (TDRS) is depicted by three gold stars. They represent the triad composed of spacecraft transmitting data to Earth through the TDRS system. The stylized red, white, and blue ribbon represents the American goal of linking space exploration to the advancement of all humankind.
