All the cool kids save their ticket stubs. All the cool cosmonauts save their space patches. And all the space posers have to settle for reproductions so we can adventure vicariously through their missions.
These NASA patches, from the aptly named Space Store, are so nerdy and so awesome at the same time.
If it’s between the universe and The Sex Pistols, I’d much rather slap a Mercury mission patch on my denim jacket. Really stick it to the man.
Fun Fact: From 1974 to now, NASA has documented about 1,800 "spinoff" technologies like artificial limbs, solar panels, water filters, cellphone cameras — but not velcro. More space exploration = more unforeseeable innovations. Go space!
