Trevor Beattie
@trevorbmbagency
In 1903 Orville Wright wrote his name into history, making humankind’s first powered flight. In 1923, Wright wrote a cheque for $2.23. In 2023, Orville’s cheque will fly weightlessly in Space with me. Having been neatly folded into this paper plane.. #Galactic04 #Oct5th

🌌 Exploring the Design: Can you spot the Crescent Moon in the #Galactic04 mission patch?

At the core of the design lies a prominent purple moon, with each astronaut holding a unique connection to it. Astronaut 017 draws inspiration from the Moon Landings, Astronaut 018 crafted an award-winning piece inspired by it, and Astronaut 019 proudly represents Pakistan, a nation whose flag features the Moon symbolizing progress.

The crew is proud to represent the progress that can be achieved for all of humanity when we work together in unity.
