Possible SC movie 'mission' patch?

What Space Camp forum would be complete without a place to talk about one of the best/worst movies of all time, SpaceCamp, as well as all Space Camp references in pop culture.

Possible SC movie 'mission' patch?

Postby p51 » Fri Jun 07, 2013 3:53 pm

I've been thinking about making a fake mission patch for the SC movie 'mission.'
I have a list of all the full names of the characters on the Atlantis as it lifted off (that took a while, most listings of the characters on movie site only have their first names).
I had originally posted questions on when the filmed FRF for the movie took place, but I now realize it must have been the 16 September 1985 FRF in anticipation for it's first mission. I also assume they used Atlantis' first launch as well, a month later. Nothing else would match the timeframes for when they were getting footage for the movie.
Just curious if anyone would be interested in a fake mission patch for the film? Maybe a play on the STS-51J patch with Jinx instead of Lady Liberty?

The patch sounds cool! I'd be in for one if you make it.

As for the shuttle launch: I recall reading the filmmakers used Discovery launch footage - STS-51C comes to mind.

EDIT: Yes, 51-C. SpaceCamp Blog did a small bit on it last year:
Space Camp • June 11-16, 1989 - Session 31 - Martin Marietta
Space Academy, Level 1 • June 16-21, 1991 - Session 24 - BDM
Adult Space Academy • September 26-28, 2003 - Session 52 - Discovery
Alumni Camp • June 14-17, 2007 - Session 38 - Challenger

I'm possibly interested (need to see the image and get estimated cost information before I commit). But definitely keep me in the loop if you decide to do something like this.
