Satoshi Furukawa has posted a picture of his personal patch on Twitter.
JAXA decided to make a logo on my mission!

Editor's note: Satoshi Furukawa has further tweeted (in Japanese) details about the insignia. A translation, courtesy a colleague:

To represent the life science experiment at "Kibo" (Japanese experiment station), the logo is designed with the double spiral structure of DNA, crystallization, and the human body to image the experiment of the space medical field. It also expresses that the experiments at "Kibo" stretch to earth.

In addition, to further promote the International Space Station, which is a symbol of international cooperation, JAXA is promoting the fact that the cooperation with Asian countries has become widespread in Asia.
