Robinson and Soichi Noguchi (who are assigned to spacewalk duty to perform work on the International Space Station). At bottom center is the mission insignia, which bears the surnames of not only the STS-114 crewmembers but also those of the two Station crews who will be switched during the mission. Astronauts Kenneth D. Bowersox, Donald R. Pettit and cosmonaut Nikolai Budarin, will be returned to Earth at the completion of STS-114. Their replacements will be cosmonauts Yuri Malenchenko, Alexander Kaleri and Edward T. Lu.
Sometime in August 2003 NASA changed the crew photo and removed the insignia from the crewphoto and also the astronaut suits.

(STS114-S-001 - March 2004) --- The STS-114 patch design signifies the return of the Space Shuttle to flight and honors the memory of the STS-107 Columbia crew. The blue Shuttle rising above Earth’s horizon includes the Columba constellation of seven stars, echoing the STS-107 patch and commemorating the seven members of that mission. The crew of STS-114 will carry the memory of their friends on Columbia and the legacy of their mission back into Earth orbit. The dominant design element of the STS-114 patch is the planet Earth, which represents the unity and dedication of the many people whose efforts allows the Shuttle to safely return to flight. Against the background of the Earth at night, the blue orbit represents the International Space Station (ISS), with the EVA crewmembers named on the orbit. The red sun on the orbit signifies the contributions of the Japanese Space Agency to the mission and to the ISS program. The multi-colored Shuttle plume represents the broad spectrum of challenges for this mission, including Shuttle inspection and repair experiments, and International Space Station re-supply and repair.
(STS114-S-001 - October 2002 and December 2002) - The STS-114 patch is a simple design that represents a complex mission to the International Space Station (ISS). Against the background of the Earth at night, the blue orbit represents the ISS, with the crew of Expedition 6 named on the orbit. The multi-colored Shuttle launch represents the broad spectrum of challenges for this mission, including ISS crew change out, ISS re-supply, Space Station construction and repair, and space science. The new crew for the ISS, Expedition 7, is named in the bottom half of the patch outer ring, while the Shuttle crew is named on the top half. The red circle in the name Noguchi signifies the Japanese Space Program, which he represents.
