ROSKOSMOS.  EMBLEM OF THE SHIP "UNION MS-08"

 02/21/2018 10:10 AM

 The commander of the main crew of the transport manned spacecraft Soyuz MS-08, the cosmonaut of ROSKOSMOSA Oleg ARTEMIEV spoke about the chosen emblem of the crew and explained the space symbols "encrypted" in it.

 The shape of the descent vehicle, which was chosen for the crew's emblem, symbolizes the successful completion of the flight program.  In the center we see the silhouette of the three members of the main crew: Oleg ARTEMIEV, Andrew FOIESTEL and Richard ARNOLD heading for the Soyuz-FG carrier rocket to go on a "space mission."

 Behind the launch complex in the sky, the Moon and Mars are visible, which indicates the man's desire to explore the outer space.  Six gold stars are the six crew members of the International Space Station.  In the sky, the station itself is depicted - the target for docking a manned spacecraft.

 The silhouette of the stele called "Science and space" (one of the symbols of Baikonur) and the tulip from the coat of arms of Leninsk (formerly called the city) recall the glorious history of the first "space harbor".  This part of the composition is dedicated not only to the native city of Oleg ARTEMIEV, who is an Honorary Citizen and resident of Baikonur, but also to all people whose fate has come into contact with the largest cosmodrome in the world.

 The lower border of the emblem is decorated with flowers of Russian tricolor, stripes in the colors of the US flag and the logo of ROSCOSMOS.  Above the curb is the name of the spaceship and the numbers of the main expeditions in which the crew members will take part.

 The launch of the Soyuz MS-08 manned spacecraft by the Soyuz-FG carrier rocket is scheduled for March 21, and now the main and backup crews successfully pass examinations at the Cosmonaut Training Center.

It seems that "Hawaii" is Artemyev's callsign (per NK forum)
