Soichi Noguchi personal patch "Return to Flight" - STS-114 - Randy Hunt

Soichi Noguchi (野口 聡一 Noguchi Sōichi?, born 15 April 1965 in Yokohama, Japan) is a Japanese aeronautical engineer and a JAXA astronaut. His first spaceflight was as a Mission Specialist aboard STS-114 on 26 July 2005 for NASA's first "return to flight" Space Shuttle mission after the Columbia disaster. He was most recently in space as part of the Soyuz TMA-17 crew and Expedition 22 to the International Space Station, returning to Earth on 2 June 2010. He is the fifth Japanese astronaut to fly in space and the fourth to fly on the space shuttle.

This patch differs slightly from the official Noguchi "Return to Flight" patch, which has a white overlock border. Randy Hunt also took the liberty to add the rest of the crew to the patch. There is also an alternate Noguchi personal patch from Randy Hunt
