Astronaut trainer Michael Grabois shared via Twitter this humorous insignia for the Astro-Nots, the flight controllers and instructors who stand in for real astronauts during simulations and training sessions:

Hmm...it does bear a striking resemblance to a certain wedge-shaped spaceship from a little movie that opened in 1977. Maybe a tribute to one's youthful inspiration?

I don't like the NO symbol that seems to overlay the astro-not. These people play too big a part to have this negative symbol associated with them. I think the red line could have travelled around this figure, just my opinion.

No, not mine. Gary I believe that the red slash is just meant to imply these people won't fly.

Red slash? That's red tape!
