Among the items issued to astronauts are velcro-backed leather name tags that can be attached to flight suits and jackets. Dr. Ellen Ochoa, an electrical engineer, became the first Hispanic woman to enter space. She flew on the Space Shuttle four times as a mission specialist: STS-56 (1993), STS-66 (1994), STS-96 (1999) and STS-110 (2002). The first three were science missions and the last went to the International Space Station. In 2013, she became director of NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. The gold wings insignia denotes an astronaut who is not a pilot. NASA transferred a number of astronaut name tags to the Museum over the years, including this one in 2012.
