ISS Expedition 39 Crew Patch
Image Description:
Increment 39 of the International Space Station Program marks the 15th year of operation since the start of the space laboratory assembly. Today, the U.S., Russia, Japan, Canada, and the European Space Agency are partnering in the operation of the largest ever orbital outpost managed by humankind. The names of the six crewmembers are depicted in their native languages. For Expedition 39, the Soyuz spacecraft serves as transport vehicle for the crewmembers to and from the station. During this expedition, the ISS will serve as a platform for scientific research, Earth and astronomical observation, education, as well as a stage for the development of new technologies used for the exploration beyond low Earth orbit. The star above the complex signifies human space exploration towards new frontiers. The crewmembers added these words: "The crew of Expedition 39 is proud to serve the international community in furthering our scientific knowledge and in expanding human presence in space."
