We are launching another Kickstarter campaign! In celebration of the upcoming solar eclipse this summer, we have designed a commemorative patch for those who wish to remember the event.

I just launched a unique Kickstarter project today of which I believe is one of the first of its kind for NASA-related aerospace patches.
In December 1955, Project Manhigh was conceived by the USAF to study the effects of cosmic rays on humans. This was some of the early groundwork research for the future of manned space travel.
 
In honor of Project Manhigh's 60th anniversary in December, I plan to fly Project Manhigh commemorative patches to the same altitude as the three brave pilots of Project Manhigh, recover and deliver the patches.

A big thank you to all of the backers to made the second Kickstarter campaign a huge success. The See-Bassett commemorative patch will be made! The campaign raised almost twice the original funding goal so I added a stretch goal for a second patch to be made. It seems only fair to use the extra funds for more creative work and the stretch goal was funded within a few days. I let the backers and collectors vote on which patch they would like to see included. 

The votes were overwhelmingly in support of a Deke Slayton Delta 7 fantasy patch to complement the Eagle One Aerospace Mercury artwork patch series. The second place votes supported a Pegasus Satellite patch.
