Soyuz TMA-13M mission patch

Soyuz TMA-13M will launch for the International Space Station (ISS) with Roscosmos cosmonaut Maksim Surayev, NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman and European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Alexander Gerst in May 2014.

The callsign for their mission will be 'Cepheus'.

Designed by Luc van den Abeelen, inspired by the so called 'Fisherman' statue at Baikonur. Interesting detail: commander Max Suraev already chose this as his patch in March 2011, when he still was commander for Soyuz TMA-09M.

Thanks a lot for the artist!

It's the first space monument we see in Baikonur when going from the airport "Krainiy" to the city. The mosaic is called "0 g" ("Apeusanteur" in French) and people is calling it "fisherman" cause the cosmonaut shows the size of the fish he got...

Really good design!

Thanks for the explanation of "The Fisherman". At first I didn't get it, but now I find it rather unique and clever.

However I assume that the star pattern is supposed to be the constellation Cepheus? I say this because it doesn't look like any representation of Cepheus that I have ever seen.

The way have also seen it like this.

On the patch it almost looks more helix shaped, then a square with a triangle.

This is how Cepheus fits in the patch.

Dear friends from spacepatches.nl, I got recently information the crew had one more version of the patch where the cosmonaut is flying upside down. If so could you share with the patch photo please?

Russian, did your source drink too much vodka and saw it upside-down?

Yes, it does exist. It was a special request by Max Suraev, as a small joke, to hand out to friends and family etc.

Just remember: In space, there is no up or down...

OK! Thank you! In the Star City they called it CREW MEMBER. Now I understand...

How many of them have you produced?

I actually prefer the upside down patch as it more accurately shows astronauts in zero gravity. The actual patch reminds me of Ryan Lochte or Mark Spitz, Olympic legends in swimming.
