Soyuz MS-23

Soyuz MS-23 launched February 24, 2023 to ISS without crew as a replacement for MS-22 which sustaned damage to its cooling system. It will return the Soyuz MS-22 crew to Earth this summer.
The patch design centers around the illustration of the Soyuz MS-23 uncrewed spacecraft flying toward the International Space Station, which is visible on the right. The Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft is also shown but undocked from the ISS, with Soyuz MS-23 arriving to replace it. Also included are stylized images of Earth, the moon, stars and the Sun, with the latter's rays symbolizing hope. Copyright Roscosmos

The (woven) original patches for Expedition-69 and Soyuz MS-23 as planned before the cooling system issues.

The unique mosaic design is inspired by the vintage, Art Deco stained glass window in Star City, Russia that provides a stylistic portrayal of the beauty of space exploration. The number "69" forms a circle to symbolize the international partnerships and collaboration that make the ISS program possible. Earth is the central element inside the "6", as our home planet and the primary beneficiary of research onboard space station. The star shining from Earth, spanning multiple continents, represents the ground teams around the world who support every aspect of this expedition and ensure our safe return home. The ISS signifies the contributions of thousands of people over the past several decades, whose vision and sustained efforts have made this laboratory an unparalleled success. Looking towards the future, the next big steps in human space exploration are reflected in the Moon and Mars. The sun around Mars is symbolic of the human imagination, curiosity, and ingenuity that draws us to explore. The two white stars in the sky are taken directly from the Star City mural. The larger star represents the family and friends whose love and support makes this endeavor possible. The smaller star represents the explorers who came before us and helped pave the way to the stars.


Crew Dragon Endeavour launched the Crew-6 astronauts, Stephen Bowen, Warren Hoburg, United Arab Emirates astronaut Sultan Alneyadi, and Roscosmos cosmonaut Andrey Fedyaev to the International Space Station on March 3. Sailing across the Crew-6 patch, the ship represents both our destination, the International Space Station, and the vessels that countless explorers have steered into the unknown. The ISS anchors us, on the dawn of missions to the Moon and Mars. The ship's sail, a symbol of the 2012 Cosmonaut class, has relative radii matching those of Earth, the Moon and Mars. The Draco constellation represents the Commercial Crew Program, and shares a name with the thrusters that maneuver our Dragon spacecraft. The ship's Dragon figurehead looks to the future, as we also look back at Earth, grateful for the tireless hours of all who support our mission.

Shenzhou-16 & 17

Mission patches for Shenzhou-16 and -17, to be launched in May and October 2023

UAE-2 mission

The woven patch for the first Arab long-duration astronaut mission, during Crew-6, depicts an astronaut wearing the suit and looking at a drawing of the Late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the UAE’s founding father. The logo also shows part of the Earth and the International Space Station alongside the names of the mission and astronaut Sultan AlNeyadi.

Soyuz MS-22

The Soyuz MS-22 crew patch contains the crew's callsign 'Altai' and the flags of the countries participating in the flight. The ISS is surrounded by three stars, corresponding to the number of crew members on the ship. A swan symbolizes commander Sergei Prokopiev, pilot of Tu-160 aircraft nicknamed White Swan during his military service. A stylized image of a turtle symbolizes the name of the 2017 astronaut group, Turtles, of which astronaut Rubio is a member. Next to the swan there is a figure in the shop of a sail, formed by three arcs of circles, representing the orbits of the Earth, Mars and the Moon. This is the symbol of the Roscosmos cosmonaut corps at the time of cosmonaut Petelin's selection. Soyuz MS-22 was launched on September 21, 2022. Copyright Roscosmos

Starliner CFT

Patch for Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner spacecraft on its first mission with astronauts, known as the Crew Test Flight, to the International Space Station. The capsule will dock with the space station, then return to Earth to landing in the Western United States. NASA astronauts Butch Wilmore and Suni Williams will fly on the mission in April 2023.


Commanded by former NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson. Paying passenger John Shoffner will serve as pilot of the mission. Two commercial space fliers from Saudi Arabia, Ali AlQarni and Rayyanah Barnawi, will also be on the approximately two-week mission to the ISS lifting off in May 2023.

Polaris Dawn

The Polaris Dawn mission will be commanded by billionaire Jared Isaacman, making his second trip to space. He will be joined on the all-private mission by pilot Scott Poteet, and SpaceX employees Sarah Gillis and Anna Menon. The mission is expected in July 2023.


The name of ESA's Andreas Mogensen’s second ISS mission is ‘Huginn’. Inspired by Norse mythology, the name is taken from one of two ravens who serve as helper spirits of the god Odin, Huginn meaning ‘thought’. The mission patch is rendered in the red and white of the Danish flag, and ESA’s own ‘Deep Space Blue’ colour. The raven is depicted flying to the right, moving into the future as he glides over an Earth-rise horizon, which could also be seen as the Moon or Mars. Its wing includes shading in the shape of Denmark, while the white of the wing’s highlight depicts the journey to the Space Station from Andreas’s birthplace in Copenhagen. Two stripes on Huginn’s back depict the distinctive solar arrays of the station, and represent Andreas’s second spaceflight. Six stars in the background form a constellation that resembles the Viking symbol for 'safe travels'. Mogensen will fly on SpaceX Crew-7 mid-2023. Patch designed by ESA graphic designer Karen Lochtenberg.
