International Cooperation Commemorative 8x10" Patch

This design is the eighth in the series "Celebrating 50 Years of America in Space" it honors the men and women of Apollo-Soyuz, Shuttle-Mir and the International Space Station Program.
EX ASTRUM INTELLIGENDO tranlated from Latin means "From Space (comes) Understanding. A sentiment at the heart of International Cooperation.

This month we celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Apollo-Soyuz so I this it was an appropriate time to offer this patch.

This design takes its inspiration from the emblem of each program.

At the bottom is Apollo-Soyuz. Apollo-Soyuz was the first small but critical effort to see if the United States could cooperate with its former adversary the Soviet Union. Although only one mission, it opened the door.

In the center is Shuttle-Mir which took the success of Apollo-Soyuz to the next level. Taking place 20 years after it became Phase 1 of the ISS program.

At the top the International Space Station has become the largest and most complex structure ever constructed on orbit. It has realized the goal of the Space Shuttle Program and will lay the foundation of explorations in the future.

The patch is 8 by 9 inches with a merrowed border. It is not fully embroidered as the black area of "space" is black twill. This allows the artwork to be highlighted in a three dimensional effect.

This design was created by Tim Gagnon of Titusville, Florida, a graphic and portrait artist with a life long passion for space exploration. His work is on display at the Kennedy Space Center, in a number of museums and aboard the International Space Station.

The above image of the embroidered patch is of a sample. The patch still needs a bit of work and I've already instructed the embroidery company. But I wanted you to have a preview of the design.

The patch is $8 plus $6 for USPS Priority Mail for US folks and $15 for outside the US. To order, please contact me via e-mail.

I apologize that there isn't a proper order form but my PC has crashed. If interested I will email you a description of the patch so you can print it and send it along with your payment.

Thanks for looking.

Tim

I don't know if it's because the economy is bad, my timing is off or the design isn't as good as the others but the response to this patch has been way less than I hoped.

The theme of this design is a tribute to International Cooperation from Apollo-Soyuz to the ISS. It has nothing to do with the debate raging in Washington about NASA's mission. I thought releasing it during the 35th anniverary of Apollo-Soyuz would be a good thing, maybe I was mistaken.

To those few who have sent me their order, your checks have not been cashed yet, I will hold them until I can place an order to have the patches made or be returned to you if I can't.

I know some of you have already placed an order but I am compelled to write again as the response to this patch has been less than I hoped.

As of this writing I have only received 10 individual orders. I expect that our economy has affected the response (which I can certainly understand). I am hoping that most of you missed the first announcement and are not yet aware that this patch is available for order.

To those of you who have submitted an order, THANK YOU. I am still holding your original payment until I can place an order with the embroidery company. Hopefully soon.

I am pleased to announce that I have placed my order with the embroidery company. I want to thank all of those who pre-ordered the patch for helping to make this possible.

For those of you who needed to wait to see if this poject would become a reality, I hope you will decide to order a patch as well.

I should have them in hand by the third week of September and will fill orders ASAP.

I bought the patch at the Space Store and I like the design! It was a good idea to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the ASTP and maybe the 10th anniversary of the ISS too...

I have started a collection of patches from the STS-flights in the Shuttle/Mir Program and placed them in a circle from the middle of the patch to a Mir Patch on top. Makes a fine picture on the wall of my living room!
