That National Center for Earth and Space Science Education is proud to unveil the 11 Mission Patches selected to fly along with the 11 SSEP flight experiments on Atlantis. A total of 974 Mission Patches were proposed by students from across the 11 communities participating in SSEP on STS-135. Each community selected its own Mission Patch based on required design criteria.

A Mission Patch main page has just been added to the SSEP Community Network Hubsite, and is accessible from the navigation banner at the top of any page at that site. This main page now has two sub-pages, one for the Mission Patches for STS-134 and one containing the newly unveiled Mission Patches for STS-135.

Congratulations to the thousands of students that took part in the Mission Patch design competitions!

The Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) is a program of the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE) in the U.S., and the Arthur C. Clarke Institute for Space Education internationally. It is enabled through a strategic partnership with DreamUp PBC and NanoRacks LLC, which are working with NASA under a Space Act Agreement as part of the utilization of the International Space Station as a National Laboratory. SSEP is the first pre-college STEM education program that is both a U.S. national initiative and implemented as an on-orbit commercial space venture.
