Spacepatches.nl has revealed the patch for his Soyuz TMA-11M flight.
The crew insignia for Soyuz TMA-11M, designed by Luc van den Abeelen in cooperation with commander Michail Tyurin and his crew.

Like Tyurin's earlier Soyuz TMA-9 patch, this design features the MAI 6th logo — the faculty of the Moscow Aviation Institute that he graduated from. Also pictured is an Olympic flame, for this flight will deliver to the ISS the Sochi 2014 torch.

Approved by the crew on June 3, 2013; by Roscosmos/TsPK on June 19, 2013.

Nice patch! It reminds me of Expedition 37 background...

This is another great looking patch from Spacepatches.nl. The colors are brilliant and I like the Soyuz being up front. I hope to get one soon.

Is there any good quality artwork for the back-up crew patch different to the embroidered patch?

Thanks for your assistance. Any help appreciated.

Maciej, it does not exist yet — there simply is no official need for such an image anywhere. The only reason we prepare it, is for Joachim's Spacefacts.de website.

Although I promised him twice already, I haven't done it yet. I will make it for you guys tomorrow Monday.

Hah! So, what happened here? And were the patches taped on? Because there's no velcro slave patch in that area, is there?

At GCTC, training versions of the Sokol suits are being used which have white loop velcro (probably taped on). GCTC also tapes small strips of hook velcro to anything used on these suits (sometimes just paper printouts). Alex must have picked up Max's patch somehow with the blue fabric strip on his sleeve.

This of course cannot happen to the flight Sokol suits. The flight Sokols do not use velcro; here, everything is sewn onto the outer layer of the suits (indeed using slave patches - making it a real accomplishment for the crews of Soyuz TMA-17 and TMA-08M to have switched their Expedition patches for landing!)

The onboard Kentavr Nauka suits do use velcro - during a recent flight, we saw one patch fly off the suits during the hatch opening ceremony!

To complete this little overview: the Orlan EVA suits also have velcro, but - as we recently discovered - here the hook version (against all common practice) is on the suits! After having used 'hook-to-hook' adaptors for a while (two pieces of loop velcro back-to-back), we now deliver all EVA patches (if any) with soft velcro on the backs.

LOL! So how long did it take for them to realize the patch was "stolen"?

I have no idea! I just noticed seeing the pictures and realized what must have happened.

...guess he still didn't realize it was missing for this "official" photo.

I have just spoken to Max Suraev and he told me he even didn't realise he lost it.

Normally, Gerst took it from the floor and put it on his spacesuit. After they took place in the Soyuz capsule, Gerst put the patch on Suraev's knee without saying anything to Max! Suraev discovered the patch on his knee and was very astonished.

Max told me the "mama" velcro on the training spacesuits is old and that was the problem. So, no bad will in this story! Max laughed!
