The crew insignia for Soyuz TMA-11M, designed by spacepatches.nl (Luc van den Abeelen) in cooperation with commander Michail Tyurin and his crew. Like Tyurin's earlier Soyuz TMA-9 patch, this design features the MAI 6th logo - the faculty of the Moscow Aviation Institute that he graduated from. Also pictured is an Olympic flame, for this flight will deliver to the ISS the Sochi 2014 torch.

On October 8 there was a meeting of the Medical Commission that analyzes the medical exams of the Russian crew members of the Expedition 38/39.

At the end of the meeting, it was decided that Mikhail Tyurin and Maxim Surayev were considered fit for the space flight.
