A crew spokesperson had the following words for the patch.  “Bathed in sunlight, the blue Earth is represented without boundaries to remind us that we all share this world.  In the center, the golden flight path of the space shuttle turns into the three distinctive rays  of the astronaut symbol culminating in the  star-like emblem characteristic of the Japanese Space Agency, yet soaring further into space as it paves the way for future voyages and discoveries for all humankind.”
