STS-127 will launch and install the Kibo Japanese Experiment Module Exposed Facility and Experiment Logistics Module Exposed Section. The facility will provide a type of "front porch" for experiments in the exposed environment, and a robotic arm that will be attached to the Kibo Pressurized Module and used to position experiments outside the station. The mission will include five spacewalks.

Mark Polansky will command shuttle Endeavour, targeted to launch in 2009. Douglas Hurley will serve as the pilot. Mission specialists are Christopher Cassidy, Thomas Marshburn, David Wolf and Julie Payette, a Canadian Space Agency astronaut.

I like it... Simple and elegant.

I do think the astronaut symbol is a little overused, though.

This is a great one, very powerful... a perfect example of 'less is more'.

That is probably the best patch design I have seen in years! Robert, can you tell us who designed it?

No, that's the 'A' from the JAXA logo!

I really like that patch!

Actually it looks like it is both the A and a modified astro logo as one can see the three vectors below the star "A" logo.

Great patch, powerful and elegant. Very well done.

For those not yet aware, collectSPACE members Tim Gagnon (KSCArtist) and Jorge Cartes (KAPTEC) designed this insignia.

Their first collaboration was the STS-126 patch.

Jorge and Tim, delighted to hear this this most classy of designs is your brainchild.

Its a real work of art. I love your use of the letter from the JAXA logo.

As a collector, many thanks.

From both of us -

Thanks everyone, we are proud of each other and our collaboration on these projects. We both like designing patches and enjoy sending ideas back and forth across the Atlantic Ocean for feedback and/or modifications either in the USA or in Spain.

The crews, involved since the beginning have the last word (as they should) on our work and then after approval by NASA HQ the design becomes a new patch of which we are proud and happy like the "fathers of a new emblem."

With all of the incredible talent out there we are also grateful that we have been selected as many times as we have.

Thanks,
Tim and Jorge.

An example of the STS-127 patch design can be seen here on this new portrait of Christopher Cassidy.

Well done Tim and Jorge.

Is there a symbolic meaning to having 10 stars on the patch?

Ten stars for the number of people on orbit. Seven aboard the orbiter and three on the ISS.

Thank you everyone for all the compliments, but as with designs that aren't as popular, the credit goes to the crew. We are just the fortunate ones who get to do the work.

...and browsing thru the Human Spaceflight Gallery today, I noticed the patch on two new WSS (Tom Marshburn and Chris Cassidy) portraits.

Well done gentlemen

Anyone knows if Winco is going to make a pin of this mission patch? AB's is not a very good repro...

Winco makes pins for every shuttle mission, as they are NASA's choice supplier (much like AB Emblem is for patches).
