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.
