S85-38035 -- This insignia represents the record-sized space shuttle crew of eight. Crewmembers surnames surround the colorful insignia scene depicting Challenger carrying a long science module and an international crew from the United States and Europe (Messerschmid and Furrer from the Federal Republic of Germany and Ockels from Holland).
The NASA insignia design for space shuttle flights is reserved for use by the astronauts and for other official use as the NASA Administrator may authorize. Public availability has been approved only in the form of illustrations by the various news media. When and if there is any change in this policy, which we do not anticipate, it will be publicly announced.
