STS-400 Patches
« on: 08/28/2008 01:02 PM »
Moved out of L2 as these will be going public shortly.

Associated notes:

"I have gotten quite a few requests from team members, asking if there is a crew patch, or emblem for the STS-400 mission. Since the mission itself is a bit of an "underground" effort, being done in a minimalist way, NASA has not given either the crew or ourselves any official support for such an emblem. Nevertheless, there are now a couple of things floating around that you are welcome to adopt should the need arise.

A real friend of the program, and a noted west-coast designer built a Space Rescue emblem for us. This adopts many of the elements seen in a rescue organization's patch - the square cross, bold letterers and border, and simple design. The idea is that the emblem instantly identifies the rescue organization in a crowd of others. In this case, the Shuttle outlines identify the purpose of our organization.

The crew has also designed their own patch, which is also very unique, and utilizes a virtually universal emblem of Rescue.

Please note that these are UNOFFICIAL.

Paul F. Dye
Lead Flight Director."

The second one is the best one, I hope we do not need the patch (and the flight)

Any history and info about them given by your source ?

The second one is nice. Seeing two orbiter names on there has a cool factor, though as you say, lets hope STS-400 remains as just presentations etc.

Added the associated note - didn't notice that orginally - to the first post.

It is nice, however the first did make me laugh!

I like it that the crew designed their own patch :)

of course, they always do design it.  Or usually.

Loving both the ideas behind the patches for this mission.  Definitely fell in love with the second one, though!

I wonder...if...God Forbid STS-400 has to go up if they will even have time to get patches made for the flight or if they would just wear spaceshuttle patches or something similar.

Here's hoping we never have to worry about it though :)

takes longer to suit them up than to make 4 patches as long they have the machines in house

I guess my point was...won't they have alot more important things to be worried about than a patch?

Heavens yes!  I'm glad we got the patch though, it just brings the realization that NASA does have a sturdy back-up plan for STS-400 (and all the LON missions).

My gues is at this point, that they do not have embroiderd patches at this time, they just have the (two) desings (maybe more, but did not released them). By putting them on the internal JSC site it is a good reference on how people react to them, (just as we do here on this thread)... Just in case they do need a patch for STS-400.

It is now end of August.. plenty of time to have them ready for launch in October (?)
They only need 4 embroiderd patches when they launch, for the crew to wear, but probably about 25 or so will be made for the crew (flight suits) in the comming weeks....

If this flight does take place, it will be the first STS crew patch with no names of the (flight) crew !!! (if they select desing 2)...

The first one so ugly.

They should put names on the second one to make it into a crew patch, as I love the design!

Does anyone know what font is used on the second patch? It's the same font they used in the STS-125 patch. I really like it!
