The design of the embroidered crew patch for NASA's STS-60 mission depicts the Space Shuttle Discovery's on-orbit configuration. The American and Russian flags symbolize the partnership of the two countries and their crew members taking flight into space together for the first time. In this special version of the patch the astronauts' names appear in Russian Cyrillic characters.
The open payload bay contains: the Space Habitation Module (Spacehab), a commercial space laboratory for life and material science experiments; and a Getaway Special Bridge Assembly in the aft section carrying various experiments, both deployable and attached.
A scientific experiment to create and measure an ultra-vacuum environment and perform semiconductor material science -- the Wake Shield Facility -- is shown on the Remote Manipulator System (RMS) prior to deployment.
