Patch, Mission, STS-110

Patch, Mission, STS-110

     

This STS-110 patch belonged to NASA astronaut David Brown, a mission specialist who flew in space for the first time as a member of the crew of STS-107, the Space Shuttle Columbia mission that disintegrated upon reentry on February 1, 2003. (Because of changes in the flight schedule, STS-107 flew after STS-110.) A flight surgeon and a naval aviator, Brown was selected by NASA as an astronaut candidate in April 1996 as a part of Group 16. Aboard STS-107, Brown logged 15 days, 22 hours, and 20 minutes in space. Although this patch was never flown in space, it was a personal memento of Brown's.

STS-110 was a space shuttle mission to install the S0 truss segment of the International Space Station. Three of the astronauts aboard STS-110 were members of Brown's astronaut class (group 16): Rex J. Walheim, Stephen N. Frick, Lee M.E. Morin. Brown may have owned this patch as a token of support for and connection with his classmates

Doug Brown, Dave Brown's brother, gave the patch to the Museum in 2006.
