|waa49||Is there a description of the SpaceX Crew 3 patch?|
|MSS||There is a NASA description of this patch. |
The Crew Dragon Crew-3 patch highlights the beauty of space and the vehicle that is delivering our team to the International Space Station.
The sunlit capsule heralds the dawn of a new era of human space flight, as commercial vehicles expand into low earth orbit. The capsule flies upward, thrusting beyond the edge of the circle, representing an international effort that pushes to reach new heights of space exploration. The flames below the capsule honor the of thousands of workers who contributed to the US commercial vehicle effort — the fire in their hearts propels the program's success.
Since Crew-3 is the third operational flight to the Space Station, the number three figures prominently in both the shape of the exhaust below the capsule and the highlighted stars. A dragon is embedded in the exhaust opposite the three for the capsule's namesake.
Finally, four red planets represent the four crew members of the mission, as well as humanity's dream to explore Mars and even more distant planetary bodies.
