Skylab Commemorative 8" Patch
Skylab Commemorative 8? PatchThis design is the seventh in the series ?Celebrating 50 Years of America in Space? it honors the men and women of the Skylab Program.Skylab was America?s first effort at long term spaceflight. The goals were to study the effects of space on the human body as well as studying the Sun and Earth. Three 3?man crews lived aboard the station for consecutively longer stays in 1973 to 1974. The focus of this design is the distinctive elements of each crew emblem as well as honoring the six astronauts who served in a back-up role.The patch is 8? in diameter with a merrowed border. It is not fully embroidered as the area of ?space? in the center is black twill. This allows the astronauts artwork to be highlighted in a 3 dimensional effect.This design was created by Tim Gagnon of Titusville, Florida, a graphic and portrait artist with a life long passion for space exploration. His work is on display at the Kennedy Space Center, City Hall in Elmira, NY and the International Space Station.
