Hint 1


Hint 2

Find the austronauts, figure the diference in the patches


Solution

First, all of the astronauts must be recognized and named. Then they must be associated with the different mission patches, but something is amiss! All of the patches have numbers that are incorrect for their missions. Finding out by how much each mission number is off, leads to a number to index into the name of the astronaut associated with the mission. When you do this you get:

Name Mission Number Off Indexed Letter
Christa McAuliffe STS-51-L 5 - 11 = 6?

57 - 51 = 6

T
Neil Armstrong Apollo 11 13 - 11 = 2 E
Yuri Gagarin Vostok-1 4 - 1 = 3 R
Alan Shepard Freedom 7 14 - 7 = 1 E
Sally Ride STS-7 8 = 7 = 1 S
Chris Hadfield Expedition 35 37 - 35 = 2 H
Kalpana Chawla STS-107 108 - 107 = 1 K
John Glenn STS-95 97 - 95 = 2 O
Vladimir Komarov Soyuz-1 16 - 1 = 15 V
Buzz Aldrin Gemini 12 17 - 12 = 5 A

Tereshkova, the first woman in space!

Reward

The ad of Potentia


Extra notes

When the puzzle was originally published one of insignias was wrong and the resolution was lower (1500 x 1023 vs. 2500 x 1706) making it harder to read another (Soyuz "16").
