Artist Statement

"Whilst Armstrong and Aldrin were bouncing around on the Moon, Collins was nervously awaiting their return in the Lunar Orbiter, code named Columbia, aware that if they couldn't leave the lunar surface, he would be forced to leave them behind. Columbia's flight path is the furthest a manned spacecraft has ever been from the planet Earth, a remarkable achievement today never mind back in 1969. The patch shape not only mimics the design of the spacecraft but also represents an arrow pointing to the heavens and space beyond." - Simeon Fry
