YOU don’t sit every day in a Space Shuttle. So when a crew of astronauts leaves the earth, an insignia is designed to commemorate the flight. The patch always shows the names of the crewmembers in combination with stars and stripes/space shuttles/bald eagles and a piece of the earth. So we know there even was an astronaut with the name McCool. In total NASA launched 134 Space Shuttle missions. No new missions are planned.
