Check Out The ‘Star Wars’-Inspired 2017 ISS Mission Patch


The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), which oversees all the experiments aboard the International Space Station, has teamed up with Lucasfilm for one of the coolest Star Wars collaborations ever: an ISS mission patch.

Doug Chiang, design director for Star Wars Episodes I and II and concept artist for The Force Awakens, was tasked with designing the patch, which should portray all the scientific payloads already aboard and headed to the ISS within the year. With that in mind, Chiang created a Millennium Falcon-shaped patch showcasing three iconic droids from the series: BB-8 from The force Awakens, Chopper from Disney XD’s Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One‘s K-2SO.

The patch won’t be available to purchase, but CASIS will be giving them away through contests and events.
