DISCO Mission Patch

The Danish Student CubeSat Program DISCO reveals mission patch

By Nicolai Iversen, , 6/15/2021

For the last months, the Danish Student CubeSat Program (DISCO) has been running a competition for students to design the most awesome mission patch and we are now very excited to announce the winner. The winner mission patch was created by Marc Breiner Sørensen.

 Marc’s winning mission patch shows some of the important aspects of the DISCO project, such as the launch with the Falcon 9 rocket and a CubeSat. Another nice twist to the design is that the Earth below is a giant disco ball. DISCO is a collaboration between four Danish universities –  Aalborg University, Aarhus University, University of Southern Denmark and the IT University of Copenhagen – and their initials have also found their way to the mission patch.

The first three CubeSats in DISCO are funded by the Danish Industry Foundation and the first of these will be launched by Momentus next summer. The mission patch designed by Marc is for the overall DISCO program. Later, it is foreseen that the individual CubeSats in the DISCO program will get their own mission patches in addition to the DISCO patch.
