International Space Station Expedition 35 Insignia

Photo Credit: NASA

International Space Station Expedition 35 Insignia released well in advance of the mission. Emblazoned with a bold 35 for the 35th expedition to the International Space Station (ISS), this patch portrays a natural moonlit view of the Earth from the ISS at the moment of sunrise, one of the sixteen that occur each day at orbital velocity, with glowing bands of Earth’s atmosphere dispersing the sun’s bright light into primary colors.

The Earth is depicted as it often appears from space, without recognizable coastlines or boundaries – just as the international endeavor of living and working together in space blurs technical and cultural boundaries between nations.

The ISS is the unseen central figure of the image, since the view is from a window of the Space Station itself, commemorating full use of the Space Station as a long-duration dwelling from which humans can develop techniques and technologies to further explore.

The crew points out, “The arc of the Earth’s horizon with the sun’s arrows of light imply a bow shooting the imagination to Mars and the cosmos where our species may one day thrive.”

Space Shuttle 30 Year Anniversary Approaches

Early on the morning of April 12, 1981, two astronauts sat strapped into their seats on the flight deck of Columbia, a radically new spacecraft known as the space shuttle.

John Young, the commander, had already flown in space four times, including a walk on the moon in 1972. Bob Crippen, the pilot, was a Navy test pilot who would go on to command three future shuttle missions. But nothing either man had done or would do was quite like this.

BURAN – The Russian Space Shuttle

The Buran spacecraft (meaning  Snowstorm or Blizzard), a Russian version of the space shuttle completed only one mission. This was an unmanned flight in 1988 completely remotely controlled (an achievement in its own right).

The Buran program was cancelled in 1993. The flown Buran was destroyed in 2002 when the hangar that housed it collapsed.

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.
