Celebrating Flag Day

NASA astronaut Jack Fischer took this photograph of an American flag in one of the windows of the International Space Station's cupola, a dome-shaped module through which operations on the outside of the station can be observed and guided.

Throughout NASA's history, spacecraft and launch vehicles have always been decorated with flags. When Ed White became the first American astronaut to perform a spacewalk on June 3, 1965, his spacesuit was one of the first to be adorned with a flag patch. White's crewmate Jim McDivitt also wore a flag on his suit. The astronauts purchased the flags themselves, but following their flight, NASA made the flag patch a regular feature on the spacesuits. NASA astronauts still wear them today.

庆祝国旗(US)日

美国航空航天局宇航员杰克·费舍尔(Jack Fischer)把这张美国国旗的照片从国际空间站圆顶的一个窗户中取出,这是一个圆顶形的模块,通过该模块可以观察和指导车站外部的作战。

在整个美国航空航天局的历史上,航天器和运载火箭始终用旗帜装饰。 当Ed White于1965年6月3日成为第一位执行太空行走的宇航员时,他的太空服是第一个装上国旗的太空服。 怀特的队友吉姆·麦克维维特(Jim McDivitt)也穿着西装上的旗帜。 宇航员自己购买了旗帜,但随着飞行,美国宇航局在太空服上制作了一个常规功能。 NASA宇航员今天仍然穿着它们。
