Soyuz TMA-03M is a planned 2011 flight to the International Space Station. It will transport three members of the Expedition 30 crew to the International Space Station. TMA-03M will be the 112th flight of a Soyuz spacecraft, the first flight launching in 1967, and the third flight of the modernised Soyuz-TMA-M version. The Soyuz will most likely remain on board the space station for the Expedition 30 increment to serve as an emergency escape vehicle.
The Soyuz TMA-03M patch was designed by Luc van den Abeelen, partially based on the art by 11-year old Alena Gerasimova from Petrozavodsk, Russia. Former Roscosmos head Anatoly Perminov officially approved the patch on March 09, 2011. The Soyuz TMA-03M patch was the final patch based on the children's competition that was initiated for the Soyuz TMA-14 flight. The children's project had been organized by Roscosmos Public Relations and in mid 2011 Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center took over the responsibility of the operational aspects of the Soyuz patches.
