Here is a look at the 2017 NASA astronaut class, "The Turtles," patch:

I need to find me one of those.

That's the only ASCAN patch I haven't tracked down yet.

AB Emblem have just released and have listed on their website a full size 4" replica version of an Astronaut Candidate (ASCAN) Class XXII (22) patch.

It has the 2017 SKU patch design number 297362. These patches were manufactured at Weaverville, NC. The date code of 08/22 20 has not yet been confirmed at this time.

This is the first time AB Emblem have made an ASCAN patch available for sale directly to the general public. Currently only available to buy from their website.
