Last week saw the launch of the Final Space Shuttle Mission (STS-135). The exploration of space, planets, stars and all that comes with it has fascinated me since childhood. NASA has a great history of using special and unique logos for many of its projects and missions.
The current mission has its own logo:
Here are some other beautiful space theme logos I found:
The NASA “meatball” logo
- The sphere represents a planet
- The stars represent space
- The vector represents aeronautics
- The orbit represents space travel
- A great history on the logo from NASA website here.
The old NASA logo
Other NASA and space logos:
- USPTO page on the space shuttle patents
- NASA has an amazing repository of video here
