New: Since the space race began, generations of Americans have been captivated by the idea of outer space. Science fiction fantasies have filled the pop-culture long before space travel was feasible. With a new era dawning for NASA and privatized space companies our imaginations are again becoming flooded with new images of exploration.
At the start of the manned space age all astronauts were pilots from a military background and they brought the tradition of military shoulder patches with them to the space program. Since then it has become tradition for every mission to have an official patch design.
With a historic milestones being reached everyday there has never been a better time to celebrate the history and future of space travel. We're inviting artists and designers to create a new collection of mission patch designs for your favorite past, present and future missions to help engage a mainstream audience in the excitement of extending humanity’s reach beyond Earth.
