So what was it flying over my house the other night, and how do you know it doesn't have a camera.
Does the patch claim to be an ISS mission patch?
Does it claim to be a NASA patch of any kind?
Is the guy in the photograph American, from NASA, or he in fact Italian and works for the ESA?

You know what VR means?
On my Nikon camera it stands for "vibration reduction."
In electrical diagrams it can mean a "voltage regulator" or a "variable resistor." (Why universal symbols are used instead)

The names on the patch can all be found in this list of names and roles associated with 2015 projects. They're unconnected wrt specific projects, but all seem involved in LEO satellites technology businesses. The 'VR' might be an informal group name...just an idea.

Cassidy has been aboard the orbital outpost since late March and will continue his stay into September. (NASA HO via Reuters)
