Soyuz MS-10

The triangular design of the Soyuz MS-10 crew patch shows the spacecraft orbiting over the Earth's surface. Behind our blue planet, the elements of the Russian and American flags stress the international character of the space mission. The three stars, part of the US flag recall the original three crewmembers, before the removal of cosmonaut Tikhonov from this mission. In the backround of deep space, the silhouette of an owl is visible, symbolising the scientific wisdom that orbital research on board the International Space Station will gain. The orbital complex is shown in bright yellow on the left. The top right angle of the logo shows the direction of mankind's future dream: via the Moon to deep space. The Roscosmos logo is put at the top of the design, with the crew names underneath. The spacecraft designation is put in the centre of the patch. Designed by Luc van den Abeelen.

On October 11 2018, Soyuz MS-10 suffered a launch abort with the crew landing safely.


Luca Parmitano chose 'Beyond' for his next ISS mission. From the nearness to Earth of Pesquet's Proxima mission to the broadening scope of Gerst's Horizons mission, Luca saw a path that will push humankind even farther, for the benefit of all. The mission logo illustrates this trajectory. An astronaut looks out into space through a helmet visor. Earth and the Space International Station are reflected in this visor. In the distance, the Moon is poised for humankind's return, with the Orion spacecraft and exploratory rovers. Beyond is Mars, the Red Planet, currently being studied by satellites such as ExoMars, Mars Express and, one day, by humans.
