Space Travel Program Insignia
Space travel programs create their own unique program insignia graphics. NASA in particular has a variety of insignia to support their various operations and offices. The main NASA logo most people are familiar is also known in the industry as the "meatball" logo. It was in 1959 and is still used today. It is the official NASA insignia. The NASA seal is reserved for use in connection with more formal and ceremonial events such as award presentations and press conferences. In In 1974, NASA attempted to design a more modern logo. It consisted of a stylized rendering of the letters N-A-S-A. Known in the industry as the "worm" logo, it was retired from official use in 1992. NASA has created insignia for its new upcoming space travel programs. These include the Constellation program, and the Orion, Ares, and Altair spacecraft which are currently undergoing production and testing.
