This patch is one of a set of three that represent the different missions to Skylab, a U.S. space station that launched May 14, 1973. The third and last crew to live and work aboard Skylab were commander Gerald Carr, pilot William Pogue, and science pilot Edward Gibson. According to NASA tradition, each space crew designs their own mission patch depicting the objectives or spirit of their mission. The Skylab III patch reflects the variety of life sciences and physical sciences research conducted aboard Skylab, as well as this crew's unique opportunity to observe Comet Halley from space.
