It is very big isn't it? Do you know the size?

What a magnificent photograph from the cupola of the ISS. A great idea from Alexander in displaying this patch with the Soyuz superbly supplying a wonderful backcloth. Thank you for making this available.

I was told here in the ESA HQ in Paris there are 50 patches aboard the ISS now for the VIP. I think they prepare their Ministerial Council in Luxembourg in December...

But the patches will be returned with Soyuz or there is another Dragon flight in the autumn?

Carl, please, do you know something about it? And the size of the patches we can buy — is it the same as the size of the patches aboard the ISS?
