Details

The Minerva mission is ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti’s second expedition to the International Space Station. The name of the mission takes inspiration from the Roman goddess of wisdom. During her mission, Samantha will support science and research in microgravity to advance our scientific knowledge on Earth. The design of the patch represents the sacred owl of Minerva, whose eye symbolises a yellow Moon, casting a white glow over a round Earth. The owl’s beak hints at the shape of the International Space Station and the two lines represent Samantha’s two missions to space. Waves of ever darker blue make up the body of the owl and encourage us to move farther into deep space. The owl looks to the right, to the future of space exploration. 

THE ESA ACRONYM AND LOGO ARE REGISTERED TRADEMARKS OF THE EUROPEAN SPACE AGENCY. NEITHER ESA NOR ESA ASTRONAUTS RECEIVE ANY FINANCIAL CONSIDERATION FROM THE ESA SPACE SHOP.

FOR ALL PRODUCTS THAT BEAR THE NAME OF AN ESA ASTRONAUT, THE ESA SPACE SHOP WILL MAKE A FIXED DONATION TO HIS/HER SELECTED CHARITY.

Technique: direct printing of Minerva patch on the front and of “Samantha Cristoforetti” on the back; transfer printing of ESA logo on the right sleeve.
