My SPACEFACTS website got a new patch. Description:
"Apollo was the golden age of spaceflight" (Walt Cunningham).

At the time of this golden age I was a teenager and my dream was to walk on the Moon myself and to see the blue marble from its surface.

Well not all dreams will become true.

Thanks to the artist Jorge Cartes from Madrid, Spain. He and his friend Tim Gagnon created a lot of wonderful crew patch.

Thanks for your confidence Joachim. And thanks to my brother Tim Gagnon for his teachings over the years.

Nice patch. It kind of reminds me of this early NASA/MSC Crew Systems EVA Branch patch.
