NASA draws from Apollo emblem for new Artemis program logo

Fifty years after Project Apollo landed the first astronauts on the moon, NASA is drawing inspiration — and a new insignia — from its historic lunar program.

The space agency on Friday (July 19) revealed the logo for Artemis, its next effort to return Americans to the moon and send the first humans to Mars. The new logo incorporates the stylized "A" from the Apollo program logo.

Man, NASA seems to be ramping things up! First with the Artemis 1 patch and now the program patch. No doubt, all in conjunction with the Apollo 50 celebration.

I like the overall design, but wish that the designers would put a little more detail into the actual look of the patch. Same for the Artemis 1 design.

I like the look so far.

They seriously needed a departure from the black background patches with random elements (what my commercial art teacher in the 80s referred to as, "Ten pounds of elements in a five pound box"), design-by-committee stuff they'd been using for far too long.

Like the look, my only objection is the blue Earth to silver moon route. As Artemis is supposed to also include going to Mars, not really shown as part of the logo.

NASA says that the trajectory between Earth and the moon is red to represent the path to Mars by way of the moon.

Hmmm... I thought something looked familiar.

I have an email into them from last week. As soon as I hear anything, I'll post something. If anyone else knows, please chime in.

The Artemis logo has made its first appearance in space.
During a spacewalk outside the International Space Station on Aug. 22, astronaut Nick Hague debuted the Artemis program identity in space. Hague and fellow crewmember Andrew Morgan installed the second International Docking Adapter on the complex to enable commercial spacecraft from Boeing and SpaceX to carry astronauts to the station.

Artemis logo lapel pins now have been produced. From NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine on Twitter:
Thrilled to give Rep. Kay Granger of Texas the very first Artemis lapel pin! Rep. Granger is leading the effort to build bipartisan support for Artemis with women in Congress.
In the photo, Granger is holding the pin. Bridenstine's note reads:
Thank you for your leadership on Artemis! Attached is the very first Artemis pin. Please wear it proudly and let people know you are leading the effort to send the first woman to the moon!

I really would have preferred the black/dark blue background and white lettering version to have become the "official patch." Hoping NASA might consider such a variant for the (mostly) white xEMU suits on which it would provide much better contrast.
