Who makes rockets in NASA

TIP OF THE A
The tip of the A of Artemis points beyond the Moon and signifies that our efforts at the Moon are not the conclusion, but rather the preparation for all that lies beyond.

BLUE EARTH CRESCENT
The crescent shows missions from our audience’s perspective. From Earth we go. Back to Earth all that we learn and develop will return. This crescent also visualizes Artemis’ bow as the source from which all energy and effort is sent.

MOON
The Moon is our next destination and a stepping stone for Mars. It is the focus of all Artemis efforts.

RED TRAJECTORY
The trajectory moves from left to right through the crossbar of the “A” opposite that of Apollo. Thus highlighting the distinct differences in our return to the moon. The trajectory is red to symbolize our path to Mars.

A
The A symbolizes an arrowhead from Artemis’ quiver and represents launch.

ARTEMIS PROGRAM PATCH
The overall shape is symbolic of an arrowhead. The silver background is drawn from Greek mythology where Artemis’ bow and arrows are silver.

WOMAN ON THE MOON
A portrait of the Greek Goddess Artemis is illustrated in the highlights and shadows of the crescent Moon topography. Her features are abstract enough that all women can see themselves in her.
