STS-91 INSIGNIA
STS090-S-001 --- The STS-90 insignia reflects the dedication of the mission to the neurosciences in celebration of the Decade of the Brain. Earth is revealed through a neuron-shaped window, which symbolizes new perspectives inthe understanding of nervous system development, structure and function, both here on Earth and in themicrogravity environment of space. The spaces shuttle Columbia is depicted with its open payload bay doorsrevealing the Spacelab within. An integral component of the mission, the laboratory/science module provided by the European Space Agency (ESA), signifies the strong international involvement in the mission. The sevencrewmembers and two alternate payload specialists, Chiaki Naito-Mukai and Alexander W. Dunlap, are represented by the nine major stars of the constellation Cetus (the whale) in recognition of the International Year of the Ocean.The distant stars illustrate the far reaching implications of the mission science to the many sponsoring agencies,helping prepare for long-duration space flight aboard the International Space Station (ISS). The moon and Marsare depicted to reflect the crewmembers' recognition that those two celestial bodies will be the next great challengesin human exploration of space and represent the key role that life science research will play in supporting suchmissions.The NASA insignia design for space shuttle flights is reserved for use by the astronauts and for other official use asthe 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.
