Atlantic County Institute of Technology (ACIT) student Robert Lind’s NASA patch design has been selected as the winner of the 2018 Mission 12-Stockton Student Spaceflight Experiment Program art competition.
Robert, of Northfield, is a freshman at the ACIT Aviation Studies Academy.
His patch design is now with the National Center for Earth and Space Education, awaiting incorporation into the payload of Mission 12-Mercury to the International Space Station (ISS).
It will be loaded on to the SpaceX-Falcon9 rocket, where it will orbit the earth for 3 – 6 weeks.
The rocket will launch on or about June 9th from Cape Canaveral, in Florida.
Mission patches are a time-honored tradition in the NASA space flight program.
The winning art designs reflect the values and ideals of the mission participants.
