    That is a damn ugly mission patch

    The four-leaf clover is a bit desperate.

    No, its been a SpaceX tradition on patches since 2008.


    “Finally, at the bottom of the emblem is a four-leaf clover. The symbol
    for luck, the clover has become a regular icon on SpaceX’s flight
    patches ever since the company’s first successful Falcon 1 launch in
    2008, which also featured a clover “for luck” on its patch.”

    Yes, the storm door is open and California is suppose to get a once in a decade soaking this week.

    Think flooding; and a few people drowning. It’s not a happy scenario.

  • I like the iconigraphy of mission patches. I think it’s a great tradition that should be continued.

  • ThomasLMatula

    No its not, especially with all the fire damaged hillsides.

    One also has to wonder if any of the fire damage areas of VAFB will produce problems that might impact the launch. I assume the pads will be OK, I am thinking more about roads, power lines, etc.

    Lot’s people live with toxic weather. I lived a lot of years in Norman Oklahoma and the Dallas Ft Worth Metroplex. There was nothing like listening to the sirens and looking toward Carswell to see if it was Wx or a MITO going on. In Oklahoma, you always knew it was a tornado unless it was Friday at lunch time. People died from the weather all the time. California needs rain. Best of luck to California residents, but they need it.
