This is an archive of emblems that I design as an ongoing personal project.
Embroidered patches for space missions have been around since the early days of human spaceflight. They serve as a symbol of human curiosity, innovation and as a way to honor these ambitious projects.

The Extraterrestrial Materials Simulation Laboratory is a facility at JPL that creates simulant materials to address the challenges of in situ exploration in outer space.

These simulants (e.g. Martian soil) are crucial for realistic testing of surface systems and vehicles. This helps to reduce risk and ensures optimized designs and reliable components for future missions.
