Limited Edition (250) SpaceX and ISS Flown Pin and Patch

These NASA 60th Anniversary pins and patches will be launched into space on the SpaceX Falcon 9 CRS-13 flight, which is destined for the International Space Station. The flight is is scheduled to launch in November/December this year.

Once launched into space, the SpaceX Dragon capsule carrying these pins and patches will take 2-3 days to rendezvous with the space station. Once docked, they will be transferred to the MISSE-Flight Facility using the ISS robotic arm, where they will remain for a six month flight in orbit around the Earth.

After traveling over 75 million miles during its flight aboard the ISS (4.8 miles per second x 6 months) the pins and patches will return to Earth via SpaceX Dragon capsule, where they will then be delivered to you as a unique collectable and a piece of space history.

Just a quick note to everyone whom has ordered or intends on ordering one (or more) of these.

Please don't forget to let me know which Serial Number(s) you would like (best to choose at least three just in case your first and second choice is taken).

For the record, numbers 1, 3, 4, 58, 60, 69 and 250 are taken in both pins and patches.

Up to now, I had no information NASA was for this kind of commercial actions... Space X, yes. No logo of Space X, but only logo of NASA.

As I am sure Richard can elaborate, NASA and SpaceX are not involved in this offer. NASA allows the use of its logo on souvenir items without endorsement.

The patches and pins are being flown as part of a commercial scientific payload made possible through the U.S. National Laboratory.

NASA logo restrictions are odd to say the least. I am not allowed to use the official NASA logo or even a serif font version of the word "NASA" on commissioned artwork for NASA capital projects (for example. SOFIA) but people can use them on unendorsed souvenirs?

Robert is correct.

Additionally, NASA allows use of their logo so long as the product or company of manufacture does not appear to be endorsed by NASA. You will find a statement to this effect at the bottom of the pages linked above, specifically "legal disclaimer."

To save you a click, here it is:

Legal Disclaimer: The Space Collective is in no way partnered with, endorsed by, sponsored by or affiliated with SpaceX or NASA. Equally, SpaceX and NASA are completely unaffiliated with the above mentioned pins and patches.

Just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone who has bought one of these so far!

I will be posting periodic updates of the payload and the mission as and when they become available, including pictures (and where possible, videos).

I've received this question a few times now so I will post the reply here.
Will the pins and patches come with documentation?
Yes, each pin and patch will come with its own documentation, not only from me, but also from the carrier.

UPDATE: We have been offered the opportunity to extend the duration of flight on some of our pins and patches, so as of now, pins and patches with serial numbers of 175 to 250 will all be in orbit around the Earth for 12 months, while 1-174 will remain in orbit for the original 6 months.

Upgrades available for anyone who wants one.
