STS-133 Crew Change Patch

The final flight of Space Shuttle Discovery is due to launch on February 24th 2011, mission STS-133. It has suffered a number of delays and most recently a crew member change.

As with all missions they are planned years in advance and NASA always have to expect the unexpected.

Astronaut Timothy Kopra recently suffered an accident that has led to him being replaced by veteran Astronaut Stephen Bowen. All sorts of memorabilia and collectables featuring the mission logo have had to be hurriedly replaced to reflect this.
