STS-94 INSIGNIA
STS094-S-001 -- The insignia for NASA's STS-94 mission depicts the space shuttle Columbia launching into space for the first Microgravity Sciences Laboratory (MSL) mission. MSL will investigate materials science, fluid dynamics,biotechnology, and combustion science in the microgravity environment of space, experiments that will be conducted inthe Spacelab module in Columbia's cargo bay during the planned 16-day mission. The center circle symbolizes a freeliquid under microgravity conditions representing various fluid and materials science experiments. Symbolic of thecombustion experiments is the surrounding starburst of a blue flame burning in space. The three-lobed shape of theoutermost starburst ring traces the dot pattern of a transmission Laue photograph typical of biotechnologyexperiments. The numerical designation for the mission is shown at bottom center. As a forerunner to missionsinvolving International Space Station, STS-94 represents the hope that scientific results and knowledge gained during the flight will be applied to solving problems on Earth for the benefit and advancement of humankind.The NASA insignia design for space shuttle flights is reserved for use by the astronauts and for other official use as the NASA Administrator may authorize. Public availability has been approved only in the form of illustrations by thevarious news media. When and if there is any change in this policy, which we do not anticipate, it will be publiclyannounced. PHOTO CREDIT: NASA or National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
