  Title: STS-66 Official Crew insignia
  Designed by the crew members, the STS-66 emblem depicts the Space Shuttle
  Atlantis launching into Earth orbit to study global environmental change.
  The payload for the Atmospheric Laboratory for Applications and Science
  (ATLAS-3) and complimentary experiments are part of a continuing study of
  the atmosphere and the Sun's influence on it. The Space Shuttle is trailed
  by gold plumes representing the astronaut symbol and is superimposed over
  the Earth, much of which is visible from the flight's high inclination
  orbit. Sensitive instruments aboard the ATLAS pallet in the Shuttle payload
  bay and on the free-flying Cryogenic Infrared Spectrometers and Telescopes
  for the Atmospheric-Shuttle Pallet Satellite (CHRISTA-SPAS) will gaze down
  on Earth and toward the Sun, illustrated by the stylized sunrise and
  visible spectrum.
