The mission patch of the RASB project is based upon the symbols of both Fuzz Aldrin and Camilla SDO's purpose.
In the foreground, a solitary balloon ascends into the dark of Space. Above the balloon is the constellation Ursa Minor (Little Bear) for Fuzz Aldrin. To the left of the balloon is the to be discovered constellation Pullus (the Latin word for Chicken) symbolizing Camilla Corona SDO.
The blue ring highlights our planet Earth. The words Scientia quod Pacis around the edges of Earth represent both Camilla and Fuzz's mission; Science Education and Peace. The color white was chosen for Scientia quod Pacis to symbolize that not even the sky is the limit. The red outer ring, the blue inside ring and the white font represent the colors of the United States of America flag and are dedicated to all our U.S. Astronauts, active, retired and the ones who have lost their lives in the name of Space Exploration.
The star on the left is for Fuzz and signifies the night time peace and our children of the future, while the dawning Sun on the right is spreading its light across Earth during day time and represents Camilla and the NASA SDO education and mission.
Camilla Corona SDO is the EP/O (Education and Public Outreach) mission mascot for NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. Camilla's role is to help with informing students, teachers, parents, and anyone interested about the Sun, Space Weather and its impact on life on Earth (and Space). Camilla's dream is to visit her best friend Little SDO in Space.
