The History of NASA’s Two Logos

NASAs current logo, dubbed The Meatball,” is an iconic starry blue sphere that instantly evokes feelings of adventure, exploration and wonderand it was almost scrapped in a botched re-branding. After being adopted back in 1959, it was sneakily replaced with a simple, space-aged font now referred to as The Wormwhich looks equally classic in our eyessparking an internal debate between young and old NASA workers on which to keep. Luckily, The Meatball made its return in the early 90s, while The Worms legacy has been preserved through nostalgic images.
