Mounted on the left is a 5 inch tall USAF Aerospace Research Pilot School cloth emblem. It features a green colored slide rule over an outline of a high speed jet, all against a dark blue background. A 4 inch Apollo XIII crew emblem is mounted on the right side with the words “Ex Luna Scientia” meaning “From the Moon Knowledge.” It features the sun, symbolizing the Greek god Apollo, being carried by three horses traveling from the Earth to the Moon. A 4 inch square color photograph of the Apollo 13 Command Module descending on parachutes prior to splashdown has been placed between these emblems.
