ISS Expedition 39 mission patch

The International Space Station's (ISS) Expedition 39 begins with the scheduled undocking of Soyuz TMA-10M in March 2014. Three new crew members will arrive shortly thereafter on Soyuz TMA-12M.

ISS Expedition 39 will mark the first time the space station is under command of a Japanese astronaut, JAXA veteran Koichi Wakata. His crewmates, all flight engineers include: cosmonauts Mikhail Tyurin, Alexander Skvortsov and Oleg Artemyev, and NASA astronauts Rick Mastracchio and Steven Swanson.

Increment 39 of the International Space Station Program marks the 15th year of operation since the start of the space laboratory's assembly. Today, the U.S., Russia, Japan, Canada and the European Space Agency are partnering in the operation of the largest ever orbital outpost managed by humankind.

The names of the six crew members are depicted in their native languages.

For Expedition 39, the Soyuz spacecraft serves as transport vehicle for the crew members to and from the station. During this expedition, the International Space Station will serve as a platform for scientific research, Earth and astronomical observation, education, as well as a stage for the development of technologies used for the exploration beyond low Earth orbit. The star above the complex signifies human space exploration towards new frontiers.

The crew members added these words: "The crew of Expedition 39 is proud to serve the international community in furthering our scientific knowledge and in expanding human presence in space."

Interesting patch indeed. I do not know why, but it reminds me of something sent to the crew on August 2011. We got never an answer...

Congratulations to the artist.

Jorge (KAPTEC) and I submitted to the crew the above art in application to work with them. We never received a reply so it's ironic that the final art resembles ours so closely. Obviously we know we cannot "win them all" but we have to assume they liked something about our design.

The Earth in your version looks very nice! We should try to use it in the future for another project...

I like this patch because of the full view is the ISS. I always like the color blue in the patches.

Is it China spacecraft approaching the ISS? In any case the picture is really far from the reality!

No, it is the Russian Soyuz.

I could picture an orbiter in place of the Soyuz if the shuttle was still flying. Just my thought. I just wish more ISS patches would have had an orbiter prominently placed on an Expedition patch. This Soyuz made me think of the shuttle on the STS-132 patch for some reason.
