STS-50INSIGNIA
STS050-S-001 - Designed by the flight crew, the insignia for STS-50, United States Microgravity Laboratory (USML-1), captures a space shuttle traveling above Earth while trailing the USML banner.The orbiter is oriented vertically in a typical attitude for microgravity science and in this positionrepresents the numeral "1" in the mission's abbreviated title. This flight represents the first in a series of USML flights on which the primary objective is microgravity science, planned and executed through thecombined efforts of America's government, industry and academia. Visible in the payload bay are theSpacelab module, and the extended duration orbiter "cryo" pallet which will be making its first flight. The small "g" and Greek letter "mu" on the Spacelab module symbolize the microgravity environment being used for research in the areas of materials science and fluid physics. The large block letter "U" extendsoutside the insignia perimeter, symbolizing the potential for the experiments on this flight to expand thecurrent boundaries of knowledge in microgravity science. The Stars and Stripes of the USML block lettersand the US land mass in the Earth scene below reflect the crew's pride in the US origin of all onboard experiments.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.
