The Mission patch: Expedition 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 humanity. The names of the six crew members are depicted in their native languages. For Expedition 39, the Soyuz spacecraft serves as transport vehicle for the crew members to and from the station. During this expedition, the space station will serve as a platform for scientific research, Earth and astronomical observation and education, as well as a stage for the development of new technologies used for exploring beyond low-Earth orbit. The star above the complex signifies human space exploration towards new frontiers.
