I called the JSC media resource center on Friday and inquired: they had not received the increment insignia for release, nor had they seen it.

Florida Today: Artist etches place in NASA's history
Make Mars smaller and move it to the left. Make sure there are no clouds over Kennedy Space Center.

Those were some of the instructions Titusville artist Tim Gagnon received from the STS-129 astronauts, and he eagerly abided.

After months of discussion with astronaut Randy Bresnik, Gagnon along with Jorge Cartes of Spain designed the patch for the mission set to fly today.

An unsharp patch (maybe the payload patch) can be seen while TV broadcasts from the control center (right to the mission patch at the desk). So it must be exist.
