STS-114 - Launch Team

STS-114 marked the return to flight of the Space Shuttle after the Columbia disaster and was the second Shuttle flight with a female commander (Eileen Collins, who also commanded the STS-93 mission). The STS-114 mission was initially to be flown aboard the orbiter Atlantis, but NASA replaced it with Discovery after improperly installed gear was found in Atlantis' Rudder Speed Brake system. During OMM for Discovery, an actuator on the RSB system was found to be installed incorrectly. This created a fleet wide suspect condition. The Rudder Speed Brake system was removed and reburbished on all three remaining orbiter vehicles and since Discovery's RSB was corrected first, it became the Return to Flight vehicle over Atlantis. Seventeen years prior, Discovery had flown NASA's previous Return to Flight mission, STS-26.

 

This is a rather unique patch. I don't recall seeing any other newer STS launch team patches. Probably has to do with the return to flight.

The most noticable difference with this patch is the thicker border. There is also a black thread outline where the flame trail passes over the blue border.

What sets apart the "official" A-B Emblem STS-114 patches apart from the reproductions is the pattern used to background the continents. It is a different grain than that of the oceans. Combined with a solid red continental outline and thicker black border, you can usually identify the A-B version.

The STS-114 mission was initially to be flown aboard the orbiter Atlantis, but NASA replaced it with Discovery after improperly installed gear was found in Atlantis' Rudder Speed Brake system.

Seventeen years prior, Discovery had flown NASA's previous Return to Flight mission, STS-26.

This patch is very similar to Randy Hunt's "Kaleri" version, but can be identified by the solid continent outlines and alternate pattern in the contintents themselves.

This concept patch was made by Randy Hunt and represents an updated crew manifest:  Soichi Noguchi, Stephen K. Robinson, James M. Kelly, Eileen M. Collins, Edward T. Lu, cosmonauts Yuri I. Malenchenko, and Alexander Y. Kaleri.

This patch is very similar to the A-B Emblem STS-114 "Kaleri" version, but can be identified by the dashed continent outlines and lack of alternate pattern in the contintents themselves.

STS-93 - 4" - A-B Emblem (Modern)

STS-93 marked the 95th launch of the Space Shuttle, the 26th launch of Columbia, and the 21st night launch of a Space Shuttle. Eileen Collins became the first female shuttle Commander on this flight. Its primary payload was the Chandra X-ray Observatory. It would also be the last mission of Columbia until March 2002. During the interim, Columbia would be out of service for upgrading, and would not fly again until STS-109. The launch was originally scheduled for 20 July but the launch was aborted at T-7 seconds. The successful launch of the flight occurred three days later.

STS-84 - 4" - Eagle Crest Emblem

STS-84 was a manned spaceflight mission by Space Shuttle Atlantis to the Mir space station. STS-84 involved the transfer of 3,318 kilograms (7,310 lb) of water and logistics to and from the Mir. During the docked phase, 465 kilograms (1,030 lb) of water, 383.2 kilograms (845 lb) of U.S. science equipment, 1,168.6 kilograms (2,576 lb) of Russian logistics along with 178.1 kilograms (393 lb) of miscellaneous material were transferred to Mir. Returning to Earth aboard Atlantis were 407.1 kilograms (898 lb) of U.S. science material, 531.2 kilograms (1,171 lb) of Russian logistics, 14 kilograms (31 lb) of ESA material and 170.7 kilograms (376 lb) of miscellaneous material.

STS-84 - 4" - A-B Emblem "V2" as flown

STS-84 was a manned spaceflight mission by Space Shuttle Atlantis to the Mir space station. STS-84 involved the transfer of 3,318 kilograms (7,310 lb) of water and logistics to and from the Mir. During the docked phase, 465 kilograms (1,030 lb) of water, 383.2 kilograms (845 lb) of U.S. science equipment, 1,168.6 kilograms (2,576 lb) of Russian logistics along with 178.1 kilograms (393 lb) of miscellaneous material were transferred to Mir.

This patch I have identified as "Version 2" of the A-B Emblem STS-84 patch. It differs slightly in the booster stacks and flame embroidery with the "Version 1" A-B Emblem patch. This version of the patch has been flown in space (scans from flown version). Curiously, this flown version differs from the version actually affixed to the flight suits, which is the "V1" version.

STS-63 - 4" - "Ford" - Unknown Maker

STS-63 was the second mission of the US/Russian Shuttle-Mir Program, which carried out the first rendezvous of the American Space Shuttle with Russia's space station Mir. Known as the 'Near-Mir' mission, the flight used Space Shuttle Discovery, which lifted off from launch pad 39B on 3 February 1995 from Kennedy Space Center, Florida. A night launch and the 20th mission for Discovery, it marked the first time a Space Shuttle mission had a female pilot, Eileen Collins, and carried out the successful deployment and retrieval of the Spartan-204 platform, along with the scheduled rendezvous and flyaround of Mir, in preparation for STS-71, the first mission to dock with Mir.

This version of the STS-63 patch was made prior to Janice Voss' name change after her divorce. Rumor has it that this was produced by A-B Emblem, however, A-B Emblem denies making such a patch and closer examination confirms that this wasn't their production. The actual source of these patches is unknown, nor are the quantities, though based on the frequency of which they appear for sale or auction, they fall under the "rare" category.

Astronaut Class of 1990 - NASA Group 13 – The Hairballs (black)

Pilots: Kenneth Cockrell, Eileen Collins, William G. Gregory, James Halsell, Charles Precourt, Richard Searfoss, Terrence Wilcutt

Mission specialists: Daniel Bursch, Leroy Chiao, Michael R. Clifford, Bernard Harris, Susan Helms, Thomas David Jones, William McArthur, James Newman, Ellen Ochoa, Ronald Sega, Nancy Currie, Donald A. Thomas, Janice Voss, Carl E. Walz, Peter Wisoff, David Wolf

Collins would go on to be the first female shuttle pilot, the first female shuttle commander, and then commander of the second "Return to Flight" mission in 2005. The "Hairballs" nickname, according to Jones in his book "Sky Walking," came after the group, the 13th NASA astronaut class, put a black cat on its group patch.

This a black-backed version of the Class of 90 patch. A blue version also exists.
