The Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum has introduced a new patch celebrating space shuttle Discovery's display at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.

The patch complements the Enterprise-Discovery 2012 patch, which remains for sale at the museum's gift shops.

The space shuttle was the icon for U.S. human spaceflight for thirty years. First launched in 1981, space shuttles flew missions in Earth orbit through 2011.

NASA transferred Enterprise to the Smithsonian, and it was displayed at the National Air and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center until the museum received Discovery.

As the oldest orbiter with the longest record of distinction in spaceflight, Discovery now holds a place of honor among the many treasures in the Smithsonian.

The 3-inch patch, which retails for $6, comes attached to a backing card with the above text on its reverse. It is available through the museum store at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (item no. 400049295199 Patch SPC).
