[b]Magnus Crepitus Theoria...[/b]
During the Space Camp Hall of Fame inductions held this year in June at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala., a silent auction offered one of the screen-used mission patches created for the fictional Expedition 31 crew on the CBS television series, "The Big Bang Theory."
In addition to being a cool pop culture-meets space history collectible, the patch served as a basis for the behind-the-scenes article:
Space for rent: How 'The Big Bang Theory' sent Howard Wolowitz to space
From the story:
[i]Thus far, the embroidered patch was only glimpsed on the show, sewn to the costume spacesuits that the crew wore while launching to the space station...
The insignia, which was designed by Tony Boatright, a real space program employee who designed patches for actual ISS projects, features the space station, a Soyuz capsule and a stylized representation of the 'big bang' explosion that began the universe expanding.
Stitched at the bottom of the patch, far too small for even the highest definition TV to ever discern, is a Latin phrase, "Magnus Crepitus Theoria" — or as translated, "Big Bang Theory."[/i]
