This commemorative puzzle features a collage of unique mission patches from space missions since 1965.
Did you know NASA Mission Patches were first worn by astronauts in 1965?
The concept was first introduced to NASA by Air Force pilot and astronaut Gordon Cooper.
Every NASA Mission has a Patch, to commemorate every space flight and the astronaut crew actually design their own mission patch. The patch design includes various elements describing the different scientific phases of that particular mission. Typically, the names of the crew and the name of the space vehicle and its mission number are also incorporated into the design. Worn as part of the NASA uniform, emblazoned on the right breast of the astronauts' uniforms below their nameplates and opposite the NASA emblems.
Piece it together and commemorate the historical space flights that took astronauts to the Moon, the space station and the rovers.
