I think the patch in the NASA photo is retouched as it probably had "Ko San" on it; the new embroidered version has "Yi Soyeon".

Here's the official version as posted at Johnson Space Center two weeks ago. Slightly different, especially the removal of the Earth at the base of the patch.

How on Earth — no pun intended — can they draft a new "official: version when the walkout Sokol shots on launch day clearly show the previous version with the Earth at the bottom? Talk about rewriting history.

I recreate the artwork based on the patches images (as seen on the launch day Sokols), using the real Cyrillic and Korean letters. Of course, the Earth is on.

This was the version on the Sokols (image courtesy of Bert Vis). It differs from the patches handed out during the launch, on which your image was based. Look at the 12, for instance.

I would prefer the one with the slim 1. Also, note that the globe is a little bit different (the lines).
