Heritage Flight Mission Logo

Every Celestis mission has its own logo and mission patch, following the tradition of creating a unique identity for each launch dating to the earliest days of the American space program.

The Heritage Flight logo – with 16 stars recognizing the 16 Celestis missions - commemorates the lives of those on board the flight and pays tribute to all the men and women in Colorado, California, Texas and Florida who have worked so hard to bring about this historic, Earth orbit mission.  A special marker honors Houston – home of Celestis, Inc.

The Heritage Flight logo is from well-known designer and illustrator Eric Gignac. Eric’s portfolio also includes co-design of NASA Space Shuttle mission patches for the STS 128 and 133 missions.

Track Your Loved One In Space

Celestis provides an easy-to-use tracking tool that lets family and friends track the mission's progress as the Celestis satellite orbits the Earth or makes its way into deep space.
