A little bit of NASA history

This patch, from 1981, has just landed in the shop.

It’s a NASA patch, commemorating the STS-2 Columbia space shuttle test flight.

Manned by Joe H. Engle and Richard H. Truly, the STS-2 was the second Space Shuttle mission conducted by NASA, and the second flight of the orbiter Columbia. The mission launched on 12 November 1981 and landed two days later on 14 November. STS-2 marked the first time that a crewed, reusable orbital vehicle returned to space.
