The Johnson Space Center International Space Station program office has an interesting new shirt logo available.

AB Emblem is now selling a 3-inch version of this patch with a manufacturing error.
This was a production error. The purple in the solar panels on the Space Station are a lighter color. The text is also red instead of the yellow.
