|hoorenz||Looks like this is the logo for the TMA-16 spaceflight participant Guy Laliberté's Poetic Social Mission.|
|Robert Pearlman||The webcast announcing his flight didn't offer a close-up view of it, but Laliberté appeared to be wearing a mission patch, too: |
|hoorenz||"Water for all, all for water" (from an AP photo). |
|dcfowler1||Image of patch here.|
|hoorenz||A second Poetic Social Mission patch, this time not with the One Drop theme, but Cirque du Soleil. |
|hoorenz||And also seen: a One Drop patch. |
|Robert Pearlman||Patches, stickers and pins (and more) are now available for sale through One Drop and Poetic Social Mission boutique.|
|Jacques van Oene||Too bad that these patches are only available for the USA and NOT Europe. |
|spaceman||Jacques, I saw that too. If you log in as a UK user you do not get the drop down box for these souvenirs... you do if you log in as a USA user?|
For completists that makes three stickers/decals, four patch variations and seven pins... and we were worried about a named and an unnamed patch version!
|Robert Pearlman||When I placed an order, during the checkout process, it again asked my nation for the billing and shipping information. As European countries are listed on the original drop down menu, it may be possible to still order by first selecting 'USA' and then specifying a different country during checkout.|
|Jacques van Oene||If you do that you get this message:|
"The country where the order is to be shipped is not the country chosen when logging on to the site."
So they make it hard for people not in the USA to get this.... one drop... water for everyone... but not patches for everyone.
|Jacques van Oene||I just got and E-mail from Cirque du Soleil and they say that all the mission patches, pins and stickers will be available for Europe after September 25...|
|hoorenz||From experience I can tell they ship out very fast from Paris. A T-shirt I ordered, arrived within 48 hours by DHL.|
|Harald Kraenzel||About an hour ago I received an answer from Cirque du Soleil saying: "the patches will be available on our European eboutique soon, but we do not have a precise date."|
I hope that it is as Jacques tells.
|benguttery||I note that the two mission style patches are OUT OF STOCK on the web site. |
The rectangular patches are still available.
I see the sticker also came in a Cyrillic version. Did the patch?
|Robert Pearlman||My order arrived on Wednesday: both mission patches (only English and French, Cyrillic was only available as a decal), all three decals, the English mission-style pin and this red clown nose. |
Laliberté is taking nine such noses to the International Space Station, one for each of his crewmates and himself.
|benguttery||I got my two mission style patches and two poetic social mission patches today, but NO nose. I don't mean to get ugly, but I think there just must be a bunch of clowns working there!|
|Bill Nelson||I see that they are going to be selling the patches in Europe after Sept. 25th. I was not able to get one, and they are now sold out in the USA. Is anyone in Europe is willing to buy one of the English mission patches for me I will pay cost and postage, plus $5 for a patch.|
|spaceman||Bill, they may currently be sold out... but I'm sure more will follow. If not I'll order extras any way from the European site.|
|spaceman||As of today the European (UK) site only has two mission stickers for this flight... no pins, no patches. Guy what are you doing? You probably have far more on your mind but please help us out here.|
Okay, I'll accept a flown patch when you return... grudgingly... you wish!
|spaceman||Mission patches still not available from the U.K site. Does anyone have one for sale?|
