US Space Force Astronauts Patch by Artist Tim Gagnon

Since its beginning the space program military test pilots have volunteered to join the Astronaut Office. 

In 2013 Jorge Cartes R and I designed a set of “Military Astronaut” patches inspired by the emblem of each service. They have been well received.

I knew that with the formation of the U.S. Space Force last year I would eventually need to create another patch.

Well last month I learned that Crew 1 Commander: Colonel Mike Hopkins transferred from the USAF to the USSF and will be the first USSF astronaut to fly when he takes the oath of that service.

So I accelerated my work to complete this design and also updated the other service patches.
