[i]The OA-8 mission is Orbital ATK's eighth Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) mission to deliver supplies to the International Space Station, depicted by the shape of the patch being a numeral eight along with the yellow star at the top of the patch.
This mission launches on an Antares rocket represented by the red, white and blue trajectory emanating from the Wallops Flight Facility on Virginia's Eastern Shore. The Cygnus spacecraft, with its solar panels deployed, is shown rising into orbit on the top left side of the 8. The space station, where Cygnus will berth and deliver provisions and science experiments to the astronaut crew, is depicted on the top right side of the patch.
The Cygnus spacecraft for this mission is named in honor of former astronaut, (TBD), who is represented by the astronaut symbol to the left of the Earth. The name of the program and the customer are featured on the outer ring of the design.
This patch was designed by Orbital ATK employees, George Valuikas and Gary Burnside.[/i]
