The Luna 02 mission logo continues the recurring Celestis theme of astronaut wings enveloping planet Earth as the Celestis payload – symbolized by the star rising in a plume of smoke – leaves the planet on its mission of purpose. The Lunar surface beckons at the top of the design, inviting the spacecraft’s precious cargo – the Luna 02 participants – to their final resting place. The numeric symbol “2” is prominently displayed, proclaiming the second time a Celestis spacecraft has reached the Moon, and establishing for all eternity the truly historic nature of this flight.
Every Celestis mission has its own logo and mission patch, following the tradition of creating a unique identity for each launch dating to the earliest days of the American space program. Eric R. Gignac is the Celestis Aurora Flight, mission logo designer.
This is a woven patch with clean, crisp, details. A woven patch allows a high resolution graphic and superior quality compared to an an emrboidered patch. Size: 3.75 x 3.75 inch. Iron-on backing.
Note: The framed Luna 02 Flight mission patch displays a representative launch photo.
