International Space Station Expedition 67 Mission Lapel Pin Badge
The Expedition 67 patch celebrates our on-going international mission to conduct science and research to improve life on Earth and extend our presence in the solar system.
The International Space Station (ISS) is poised in the foreground to recognize the contributions of the thousands of engineers, scientists, researchers, trainers, fabricators, leaders, and dreamers who have made this miracle of engineering and sustained operations possible.
Our beautiful home, the planet Earth, serves as a central element of the patch, just as it is central to the ISS’s mission. While we endeavor to unlock the mysteries of the universe, we are also committed to better understanding the Earth and how we can protect it for future generations.
Three stars shine bright on a field of black, representing the United States, Russia, and Italy, the three countries with crewmembers on this particular expedition. The numerous stars further scattered across the night sky represent the additional countries that comprise the ISS partnership.
The life-giving rays of the sun represent our crew’s families, whose love and support make this endeavor possible.
