CREW EMBLEM CARRIED ON APOLLO 13.
Flown on Apollo 13, an embroidered cloth crew mission emblem, 4 inches in diameter. Mmounted under acrylic onto a shield-shaped wooden plaque. The back of the plaque is inscribed: "This crew patch was flown on Apollo XIII. From my personal collection. Fred Haise, Apollo XIII LMP."
"The Latin motto - "ex luna, scientia" ("from the moon, knowledge") - mimics the Naval Academy's "ex trident, scientia" ("from the sea, knowledge"). Unusually, the emblem does not carry the crew members' names" (Jim Lovell, interview in Quest, The History of Spaceflight Magazine, Spring 1995).
