NASA has begun the countdown to 20 years of continuous human presence on International Space Station (ISS) with the reveal of the ISS 20th Anniversary logo.
The 19th anniversary of the Oct. 31, 2000 launch of NASA astronaut William Shepherd and cosmonauts Yuri Gidzenko and Sergei Krikalev of Roscosmos to the International Space Station kicks off NASA's year of recognition that will continue through the 20th anniversary of the Expedition 1 start and the beginning of a continuous human presence on the space station that continues today.

Throughout the year, NASA will make new content available, such as archival footage, feature videos, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) products, special events and unique logos for the general public. The content will recognize not only the anniversary, but also demonstrate how the research conducted and lessons learned on the space station will serve as a launching pad for future lunar and Mars exploration under the banner of NASA's Artemis program and the continued international and commercial cooperation that will continue to return benefits for all humankind.

The ISS 20 logo is flying on Northrop Grumman's Antares rocket launching the NG-14 Cygnus "S.S. Kaplana Chawla" to the International Space Station.

Expedition 64 flight engineer Sergey Kud-Sverchkov shared (via Twitter) this photo of the patch aboard the International Space Station.
I congratulate everyone in the world involved in the International Space Station program!

Some might think their input is not that big but it is not so. Thanks to the work of each and everyone of you, the orbital station continues working for the benefit of humanity!

A smaller souvenir size version of this AB Emblem ISS 20 Years patch has come to light. It is 3" wide x 2" high, also oval in shape, but with the words "20 Years on the International Space Station" not included (otherwise identical). It is also manufactured by AB Emblem with the following details on the embedded label;
  • (3"x 2" patch) 417897 A-B Emblem 11/19 20 (USA)
  • (5"x 3.3" patch) 419433 A-B Emblem and 2020 (2019 year error) date codes on, see above
It looks like it was produced prior to the larger version which has 419433 as the patch design number. It is not listed on the AB Emblem website.
