Astro-2 - STS-67

Astro-2 is the second dedicated Spacelab mission to conduct astronomical observations in the ultraviolet spectral regions. It consists of three unique instruments - the Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope (HUT), the Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (UIT) and the Wisconsin Ultraviolet Photo-Polarimeter Experiment (WUPPE). These experiments will select targets from a list of over 600 and observe objects ranging from some inside the solar system to individual stars, nebulae, supernova remnants, galaxies and active extragalactic objects. This data will supplement data collected on the Astro-1 mission flown on STS-35 in December 1990 aboard Columbia.

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)
