The Exp-5 Artwork

(ISS005-S-001 - January 2002) --- The International Space Station (ISS) Expedition Five patch depicts the Station in its completed configuration and represents the vision of mankind's first step as a permanent human presence in space. The United States and Russian flags are joined together in a Roman numeral V to represent both the nationalities of the crew and the fifth crew to live aboard the ISS. Crew membersí names are shown in the border of this patch. This increment encompasses a new phase in growth for the Station, with three Shuttle crews delivering critical components and building blocks to the ISS. To signify the participation of each crew member, the Shuttle is docked to the Station beneath a constellation of 17 stars symbolizing all those visiting and living aboard Station during this increment.

As you can see there are two versions of the Artwork,(see the word ISS on top of the patch), We think that the left version was an evaluation version and was later changed into the right version...Also there are two versions of the crewpatch, also with the ISS difference...(if someone knows more about this please let us know).
