STS-91 INSIGNIA
STS091-S-001 -- This is the insignia for the STS-91 mission -- the ninth flight of the Shuttle-Mir Phase Onedocking missions. The crew will bring back Andrew S. W. Thomas, the last long-duration American crewmember flown on the Russian Space Station Mir. This mission marks the end of the Shuttle-Mir Phase One Program and will open the way for Phase Two: construction of the International Space Station (ISS). Thecrew patch depicts the rendezvous of the space shuttle Discovery with the space station Mir. The flags of the United States and Russia are displayed at the top of the patch and both countries are visible on the Earth behind the two spacecraft. The names of the American crewmembers surround the insignia on theouter areas, with the name of cosmonaut Valeriy Ryumin in Cyrillic at the lower right. The Alpha MagneticSpectrometer (AMS) is an international payload planned to fly in the payload bay of Discovery. Two thin golden streams flowing into the AMS represent charged elementary particles. The detection of antimatter in space will help scientists better understand the physics and origins of the universe.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 the various news media. When and if there is any change in this policy, which wedo not anticipate, it will be publicly announced. PHOTO CREDIT: NASA or National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
