STS-35 - 4" A-B Emblem revised

The original STS-35 artwork differed significantly from the A-B Emblem STS-35" souvenir patch. A number of close reproductions by Cape Kennedy Medals and others have come close, but not matching the original prototype. In 2016, A-B Emblem, when stock of the older STS-35 patch ran out, produced a new version on their newer machines that more faithfully reflects the original artwork and prototype. This is the version currently on sale at their web site (as of September 2016).

STS-35 - 4" - Unknown maker

STS-35 was the tenth flight of Space Shuttle Columbia, the 38th shuttle flight, and a mission devoted to astronomical observations with ASTRO-1, a Spacelab observatory consisting of four telescopes. The mission launched from Kennedy Space Center in Florida on 2 December 1990.

An in-depth write up about various versions of the STS-35 patch and variations can be found here.

White border version, twill background (not fully-embroidered). Taped tail suggests Cape Kennedy Medals.

There is also a matching 3" version.

Astro 1 - white border

HUT was one of four telescopes included on the Astro-1 Spacelab mission, which flew aboard the space shuttle Columbia for nine days beginning Dec. 2, 1990. The spectacular night launch came more than 12 years after Hopkins scientists first conceived the project. The other Astro-1 telescopes included the Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (UIT), the Wisconsin Ultraviolet Photo-Polarimeter Experiment (WUPPE), and the Broad-Band X-Ray Telescope (BBXRT).

There are both a blue and white border version of this patch. The white border appears to be slightly less detailed (for example in the galaxy arms)

This patch has a white inner border, a trait of the original artwork of the STS-35 emblem. The stars are noticebly smaller in this version than the other 'white border' version and uses a smaller typeface for the names.

STS-35 crew patch variations

In 1990 I bought the official STS-35 patch from A-B Emblem.
I don't know why but in December 1990 I had a look at the STS-35 crew picture and
specially at the patches attached to the orange space suits.

Shuttle Entry Air Data Systems (SEADS)

The SEADS nosecap on the orbiter Columbia contains 14 penetration assemblies, each containing a small hole through which the nosecap surface air pressure is sensed. Measurement of the pressure levels and distribution allows post-flight determination of vehicle attitude and atmospheric density during entry. SEADS, which has flown on four previous flights of Columbia, operates in an altitude range of 300,000 feet to landing. Paul M. Siemers III, Langley Research Center, Hampton, Va., is the principal investigator.

Shuttle Upper Atmosphere Mass Spectrometer (SUMS)

The SUMS experiment complements SEADS by enabling measurement of atmospheric density above 300,000 feet. SUMS samples air through a small hole on the lower surface of the vehicle just aft of the nosecap. It uses a mass spectrometer operating as a pressure sensing device to measure atmospheric density in the high altitude, rarefied flow regime where the pressure is too low for the use of ordinary pressure sensors. The mass spectrometer, incorprated in the SUMS experiment, was spare equipment originally developed for the Viking Mars Lander. SUMS was previously flown on STS-61C and STS-35. Robert C. Blanchard and Roy J. Duckett of
Langley Research Center are co-principal investigators. Both SEADS and SUMS provide entry atmospheric environmental (density) information. These data, when combined with vehicle motion data, are used to determine in-flight aerodynamic performance characteristics of the orbiter.
