When Astronaut Rusty Schweickart is shown entering the LM for the first time while in space, as he drops into the LM the NASA patch is on the left side of his space suit, the mission patch is on the right side and the US flag is on his right suit sleeve. The "NASA" letters on the patch are clearly seen reversed (mirror image). The "SCHWEIKART" patch over his chest is also clearly reversed. Later, after he has entered the LM and secured his boots to the Velcro on the floor, we see the NASA patch on the right side of his suit, the mission patch on the left and the US flag on his left suit sleeve. The "NASA" letters are now reading properly from left to right, as is his name patch. See more »
