STS-70 - 4" - Unknown maker

STS-70 was the 21st flight of the Space Shuttle Discovery, and the last of 7 shuttle missions to carry a Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (TDRS). This was the first shuttle mission controlled from the new mission control center room at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. STS-70 was also the first flight of the new Block 1 orbiter main engine, designed to improve both engine performance and safety. The mission was launched from Kennedy Space Center in Florida on 13 July 1995, only six days after the landing of sister ship Atlantis, marking the fastest turnaround between flights in the history of the program.

STS-101 - 4" - Original Crew "Banded" - Unknown maker

STS-101 was a Space Shuttle mission to the International Space Station (ISS) flown by Space Shuttle Atlantis. The mission was a 10-day mission conducted between 19 May 2000 and 29 May 2000. The mission was designated 2A.2a and was a resupply mission to the International Space Station. STS-101 was delayed 3 times in April due to high winds. STS-101 traveled 4.1 million miles and completed 155 revolutions of the earth and landed on runway 15 at Kennedy Space Center. The mission was the first to fly with the "glass cockpit".

Cosmonauts Yuri I. Malenchenko and Boris V. Morukov, along with astronaut Edward T. Lu were moved to STS-106. Astronauts James S. Voss and Susan J. Helms, and cosmonaut Yury V. Usachev were added to the STS-101 crew. Malenchenko, Morukov and Usachev all represent the Russian Space Agency (RSA).

There are at least 3 variations of the STS-101 patch:

  • Internal wingtip (the wingtip is inside the oval of the patch)
  • External wingtip (the wingtip extends beyond the oval of the patch)
  • "Banded" - the red, white and blue dither is a banded stitch

 

This STS-101 patch is a bit of an enigma. It is slightly smaller than the common souvenir version and has a distinct banding of the bottom red, white and blue striping where the others are "notched". It does not appear to be a limitation of the stitching, as the rest of the patch bears identical detail on the ISS modules as the larger versions. This version appears on eBay infrequently and I would classify this as "scarce".

The black border around the Earth and black mark on wing differentiates this from the Eagle Crest Emblem version.

STS-70 - Woody Woodpecker

This patch was designed by JSC employees Andrew Parris and Paula Vargasas for the crew to commemorate the delay of the STS-70 mission caused by woodpeckers drilling holes into the insulation foam of the main fuel tank. This patch was made in limited numbers and sometimes accompanied a calling card.

Northern Utah Satellite (NUSAT)

NUSAT-1 (Northern Utah Satellite) was built by Weber State University and Utah State University students and staff at
Ogden, Utah in the U.S., and was deployed from a modified GAS canister on the NASA Space shuttle Challenger STS-51B
in April 1985. The 54.5kg satellite, orbited for 20 months and demonstrated that satellites could be built small, simple, and at
low cost for special applications. With this satellite, WSU and USU shared claim to the First American University to place a
satellite in Space.
