Tikhonov is among the names. So maybe he will fly on Soyuz MS-10 (and not a second US astronaut).

Alexander Gerst‏ @Astro_Alex

Nothing like sitting in your own #spaceship for the very first time. Today @Astro_Jeanette, Sergey and I had our first fitcheck at the Energia factory in Moscow. Love the “new-spacecraft-smell” #Soyuz-MS09

Horizons logo

ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst is returning to the International Space Station next year and today he revealed his mission name and logo: Horizons.

Alexander is the first of ESA’s class of 2009 astronauts who will be sent into space for a second time, launching on Soyuz MS-09 together with NASA astronaut Jeanette Epps and Russian spacecraft commander Sergei Prokopyev in May 2018. His first mission, Blue Dot, in 2014, lasted from May to November 2014.

The logo was designed to be timeless and shows a face gazing into the horizon above a blue band that symbolises the atmosphere, but also the Blue Dot mission. The new mission goes beyond Blue Dot and extends into infinity symbolised by the white arc. To the right of the mission name is a stylised International Space Station.
