|Moonbase Alphan||International Space Station (ISS) Expedition 65 mission insignia.|
|Russian||Do we know ils simplified version?|
|Moonbase Alphan||Shirt embroidery looks like this:|
|Liembo||Looks like the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy "thumbs up" logo in that form. |
|Panther494||Really, that's horrible. Surely a nicer example could have been imagined from the original design. |
|Russian||I feel there will be a different simplified version on onboard polos and t-shirts made by Kentavr for Soyuz crew. Better one. This one is too ugly!|

|Liembo||Is it just me or does that not look like a 4" tall patch? I am sure it is, but something about that border makes it feel small. |
|Kevin T. Randall||This patch is superposed to be 3" wide x 4" tall. But I can see what you mean by looking at it Liem.|
We will have to wait until a member here received an example to confirm the actual size is as stated.
|KAPTEC||Why the purple background?|
|Liembo||I have the patch in hand, the background is blue, not purple (though it does lean a bit that way depending how you hold it in the light). It is 4" tall, the border is just very thick. |

|Russian||This is a photo of the serial number of the patches Kentavr got today from NASA office in TsPK. They will put velcro (hooks) for onboard suits of the MS-18 crew.|
|lucspace||Does anyone know if an official description of the design will be forthcoming?|
|MSS||Here is NASA's official description of the Expedition 65 patch: |
The International Space Station Expedition 65 patch depicts the space station as it appears during the time the crew will be onboard. The space station flying over the Earth represents the overall reason for having a space station; to benefit the world through scientific research and international cooperation in space.
When this expedition begins, the space station will have provided continued human presence in space for more than twenty years. Blue, the background color of the patch, symbolizes reliability.
The stars represent the crew onboard the space station, as well as mission control centers located on three continents. Those stars, in that field of blue, also symbolize the thousands of space workers throughout the space station partnership who continue to contribute to the success of our International Space Station.
