  • The Leonov crew's triangular mission patches show both the Soviet and U.S. flags, but the U.S. flag is upside-down: the stripes are on top and the stars are on the bottom. Flying a flag upside-down is only supposed to be used to signal a dire emergency... but the reason there are Americans on this mission is precisely because needing to rescue Discovery before it crashes into Io is a dire emergency. -- SuddenFrost
