NASA is currently designing and developing a new spacesuit system, called the Exploration Extravehicular Mobility Unit or xEMU, for use during Artemis missions at the Moon and adaptable for other destinations near and far.

Graphics and photos released by NASA show a new patch has been designed for the xEMU.

Interesting. A simple design, yet many elements are incorporated into it.

Yes, far too many elements.

I recognize this type of design well, from my time doing such things for the military. I called it, "graphic design by committee" where several people demanded to include an element and they had to be dumped into the same space and the designer couldn't find a way to smoothly blend them in.

My dad had a favorite expression about committees. "A camel is a horse designed by a committee."
