Officially, space station partners have only announced crew members through Expedition 59 to date. (There are crew assignments for Expedition 60 online, but they are subject to change.)

As an aside, Expedition 60 is expected to overlap the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 in July 2019, hence the inclusion of the eagle. I wonder though, what happens if commercial crew and Soyuz schedules slip the expedition? I suppose all of 2019 can be considered the anniversary year...

It is also currently scheduled to host two Soyuz crews and both USCV-1 and USCV-2. Commercial crew delays are probable, so there is likely to be a lot of turbulence in this crew.

This is the final approved art? Could do with a bit of colour, as well as names.

The above-mentioned turbulence is likely one reason why there are no names. Another reason: If the two USCV launches happen as scheduled (unlikely, I know), there could be as many as 14 astronauts in various stages of this expedition.

A handful of the earlier ISS crew patches were without astronaut names, my personal favorite being Expedition 23.

After seeing this Expedition 60 artwork, I'm actually hoping that may be the trend will come back, even if only for a couple of missions here and there. This art is beautiful and speaks to me with limited used of color and bold design elements.

Secretly hoping that there ends up being too many astronauts to make adding names impractical... but maybe that's just me.

I like this simplicity of the design and understand the rationale behind no names.

But I would have used the Constellation "Aquila" to represent Eagle landing on the moon or ghost stitched the Eagle from the 11 patch. This has too many stars.

Do we know who the artists are?
