Lot 28: STS-61B FLOWN Patch

This STS-61B patch, from the personal collection of astronaut Brewster Shaw, flew in space aboard Atlantis from November 26, 1985 to December 7, 1985.

STS-61B was NASA's 23rd space shuttle mission, and the second using orbiter Atlantis. The shuttle crew deployed three communications satellites, and tested techniques of constructing structures in orbit.

The design of this patch includes the Mexican flag to recognize Neri's nation.

The 4" x 4.5" patch has been matted and framed using archival methods; the final presentation measures approximately 10.25" x 12.25". A certificate of authenticity signed by Shaw accompanies this lot.
