Design for Space

Soviet and Russian Mission Patches

Covering the period from the beginning of the Cold War to the installation of the International Space Station, this book documents a rare collection: ­almost 250 mission patches worn by ­Soviet and ­Russian cosmo­nauts since 1963. Alexander­ ­Glushko, one of the leading specialists in the history of manned space flight and ­rocket technology in ­Russia, presents numer­ous emblems with indivi­dual explanations in their applied context: as patches worn on spacesuits. The collection not ­only comprises partially forgotten mission patches, but ­also includes rare photo­graphs of spacecraft crews and space stations. As well as providing addi­tional historical information, the collection also retraces the formation and develop­ment of Soviet and Russian symbolism in terms of space travel and brings the his­tory of cosmic heraldry to life.
