[b]Blue Origin New Shepard-23 (NS-23) patch[/b]
NS-23 has 36 payloads on board, many of which are testing important science that will benefit our future life in space for the benefit of Earth. A thread about some of the symbolism embedded in the mission patch:
[list][*]The colors signify the University of Florida's BISS payload that explores space travel's effect on plants.
[*]The plant roots represent Space Lab Tech's LilyPond hydroponics system that tests watering crops in space.
[*]The lightning bolts exemplify the University of Central Florida's ERIE experiment which evaluates the behavior of particles that obtain charge in space.
[*]The yellow hexagon symbolizes Honeybee Robotics' ASSET-1 payload that studies planetary soil strength.[/list]
