OSIRIS-REx (upcoming NASA asteroid sample return mission) patches, pins, shirts, hats, etc. can now be found online through the University of Arizona bookstore.

I am curious as to who produced the T-Rex OSIRIS-REx mission patch? It is beautifully done.

There is another OSIRIS-REx patch:

And yet another one which I would call the "Egyptian patch," it is for the Atlas V AV-067 rocket patch that launched the OSIRIS-REx payload.

I am always on the lookout for new and interesting emblems! I am curious to know who manufactured that one as well.

The T-Rex design was created by a family member of an OSIRIS-REx team member. According to principal investigator Dante Lauretta, they refer to it as the "fan art" emblem.

The patch is available through the U.S. Air Force Space & Missile Museum at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex's The Space Shop had t-shirts with the same design.

There is also a slightly smaller (3.5-inch diameter), less detailed, lighter blue version of the "fan art" patch. I believe this was a first generation to the 4-inch version being sold now. Both below for comparison.

These are shown as unavailable at the moment. Is there anywhere else they can be purchased from?

The Egyptian patch to me looks like a play on the Jurassic Park emblem.
