English: The official patch for STS-130. The shape of the patch represents the Cupola, which is the windowed robotics viewing station, from which astronauts will have the opportunity not only to monitor a variety of ISS operations, but also to study our home planet. The image of Earth depicted in the patch is the first photograph of the Earth taken from the moon by Lunar Orbiter I on August 23, 1966. As both a past and a future destination for explorers from the planet Earth, the moon is thus represented symbolically in the STS-130 patch. The Space Shuttle Endeavour is pictured approaching the ISS, symbolizing the Space Shuttle's role as the prime construction vehicle for the ISS.
Deutsch: Der offizielle Aufnäher für STS-130. Die Form des Stickers symbolisiert Cupola, die mit Fenstern versehene robotische Aussichtsstation von wo Astronauten die Gelegenheit haben, nicht nur eine Vielzahl von ISS Tätigkeiten zu überwachen, sondern auch unseren Heimatplaneten zu studieren. Das Abbild der Erde im Sticker ist die erste Fotografie der Erde vom Mond aus, aufgenommen am 23. August 1966 von Lunar Orbiter 1. So ist der Mond als vergangenes und zukünftiges Ziel für Forscher vom Planeten Erde im STS-130 Sticker symbolisiert. Das sich der ISS nähernde Space Shuttle Endeavour steht für die Rolle des Space Shuttles als Hauptaufbaufahrzeug für die ISS.
