STS-89 - 4" - Unknown maker

STS-89 was a space shuttle mission to the Mir space station flown by Space Shuttle Endeavour, and launched from Kennedy Space Center, Florida on 22 January 1998. STS-89 was the eighth of nine planned missions to Mir and the fifth involving an exchange of U.S. astronauts. Astronaut David Wolf, who had been on Mir since late September 1997, was replaced by Astronaut Andrew Thomas. Thomas spent approximately 4 months on the orbiting Russian facility before returning to Earth when Discovery docked to Mir in late May during STS-91. During the mission, more than 3,175 kilograms (7,000 lb) of experiments, supplies and hardware were transferred between the two spacecraft.

The flags on either side are distinct rectangles. Similar to the Eagle Crest Emblem STS-89 patch, but there is dashed stitching between the stripes of the Russian flag.

Shuttle Portable SpectroReflectomer (SPSR)

The SPSR provides an in-space inspection instrument for non-destructive, quantitative engineering evaluation of spacecraft exterior surfaces. The SPSR measures total hemispherical reflectance as an indication of the effects of the space environment on materials such as thermal coatings, viewing windows, reflectors, solar power systems, etc. The SPSR will provide valuable data for determining how materials degrade when exposed to the space environment within the Shuttle/Mir implementation framework. The SPSR was transported to the Russian Mir Space Station during the STS-86 mission. The SPSR was returned to earth at the conclusion of the STS-89 mission.
