Summary[edit]

Description
English: The STS-133 mission patch is based upon sketches from the late artist Robert McCall; they were the final creations of his long and prodigious career. In the foreground, a solitary orbiter ascends into a dark blue sky above a roiling fiery plume. A spray of stars surrounds the orbiter and a top lit crescent forms the background behind the ascent. The mission number, STS-133, is emblazoned on the patch center, and crewmembers' names are listed on a sky-blue border around the scene. The Shuttle Discovery is depicted ascending on a plume of flame as if it is just beginning a mission. However it is just the orbiter, without boosters or an external tank, as it would be at mission's end. This is to signify Discovery's completion of its operational life and the beginning of its new role as a symbol of NASA's and the nation's proud legacy in human spaceflight.
Deutsch: Das STS-133 Missionsemblem basiert auf Skizzen des verstorbenen Künstlers Robert McCall, sie waren die letzten Werke seiner langen und herausragenden Karriere. Im Vordergrund steigt ein einsamer Orbiter in einen dunkelblauen Himmel über einer wirbelnden feurigen Rauchfahne auf. Ein Sternenregen umgibt den Orbiter und eine von oben beleuchtete Mondsichel formt den Hintergrund des Aufstiegs. Die Nummer der Mission, STS-133, schmückt die Mitte des Emblems und die Namen der Crewmitglieder sind auf einer himmelblauen Umfassung der Szene aufgezählt. Das Shuttle Discovery wird im Aufstieg auf einer flammenden Rauchsäule dargestellt, so als ob gerade eine Mission beginnt. Es ist jedoch nur der Orbiter, ohne die Feststoffraketen und den externen Tank, so wie am Missionsende. Dies kennzeichnet die Beendigung der betriebsfähigen Phase der Discovery und den Anfang ihrer neuen Rolle als Symbol des stolzen Vermächtnisses von NASA und Nation in der menschlichen Raumfahrt.
