SpaceX Commercial Resupply Services-5 patch

After five missions to the International Space Station, including four official resupply missions for NASA, SpaceX is preparing to launch its fifth official Commercial Resupply (CRS) mission to the orbiting lab.

SpaceX CRS-5 is the fifth of at least 12 missions to the space station that SpaceX will fly for NASA. On CRS-5, Dragon is carrying more than 5,000 pounds of supplies and payloads, including materials to support 256 science and research investigations that will occur during Expeditions 42 and 43.

NASA's insignia for SpaceX's Commercial Resupply Services-5 (CRS-5) mission to the International Space Station (SpX-5):

The paw print is in reference to NASA's Cloud-Aerosol Transport System (CATS), which is launching in the Dragon's unpressurized trunk. CATS will be mounted on JAXA's Kibo Exposed Facility to study atmospheric constituents that impact global climate.
