About the mission logo:
Five lines depicting five stars and an infinite silhouette represent Astronaut Wakata's fifth space flight and the infinite possibilities of space exploration.
The blue Earth, the International Space Station (ISS) and the Japanese Experiment Module "Kibo," the new space station resupply craft (HTV-X), and the moon and Mars (Artemis program) are drawn on the white line, and it is an activity that connects everything. It represents that.
The central Hinomaru, which supports the whole, symbolizes Japan's leadership in international cooperation in the space field, and the oval ring on the outline of the mission logo and the "WA" written by Astronaut Wakata are the flights of Wakata. It has the meaning of teamwork and "Japanese spirit" that astronauts value.
