STS-61 INSIGNIA
STS061-S-001 -- Designed by the crewmembers, the STS-61 insignia depicts the astronaut symbol  superimposed against the sky with the Earth underneath. Also are two circles representing the optical configuration of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). Light is focused by reflections from a large primarymirror and a smaller secondary mirror. The light is analyzed by various instruments and, according to thecrewmembers, "brings to us on Earth knowledge about planets, stars, galaxies and other celestial objects,allowing us to better understand the complex physical processes at work in the universe." The space shuttle Endeavour is also represented as the fundamental tool that allows the crew to perform the first  servicing of the Hubble Space Telescope so its scientific deep space mission may be extended for several  years to come. The overall design of the insignia, with lines converging to a high point, is also a symbolicrepresentation of the large-scale Earth-based effort--which involves space agencies, industry and theuniversities--to reach goals of knowledge and perfection.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.
