STS067-S-001 -- Observation and remote exploration of the universe in the ultraviolet wavelengths of light are the focus of the STS-67/ASTRO-2 mission, as depicted in the mission insignia designed by thecrewmembers. The insignia shows the ASTRO-2 telescopes in the space shuttle Endeavour's payload bay,orbiting high above Earth's atmosphere. The three sets of rays, diverging from the telescope on theinsignia atop the Instrument Pointing System (IPS) , correspond to the three ASTRO-2 telescopes the Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope (HUT), the Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (UIT), and the WisconsinUltraviolet Photo-Polarimeter Experiment (WUPPE). The telescopes are co-aligned to simultaneouslyview the same astronomical object, as shown by the convergence of rays on the NASA symbol. This symbol also represents the excellence of the union of the NASA teams and universality's in the exploration of theuniverse through astronomy. The celestial targets of ASTRO-2 include the observation of planets, stars and  galaxies shown in the design. The two small atoms represent the search in the ultraviolet spectrum for the signature of primordial helium in intergalactic space left over from the Big Bang. The observations performed on ASTRO-2 will contribute to man's knowledge and understanding of the vast universe, fromthe planets in our system to the farthest reaches of space.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.
