the FORBIDDEN USES OF LOGOTYPE page of the 1976 NASA design manual feels like a sator square-esque amulet https://www.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/atoms/files/nasa_graphics_manual_nhb_1430-2_jan_1976.pdf
@aparrish My Dad retired from NASA (Lewis Research) in 1974 or so. His old friends from work, when they came over for picnics and pinochle, _hated_ "the snake" logo with the fire of many many old engineering suns.
@vaguery ha, I can understand that! I kinda love it though. for me it will always signify The Future
@vagueryThrough my workplace I do some extremely minimal design work related to NASA. I love that the people I talk to reference the logo as "the meatball".@aparrish
@vaguery @aparrish It's called the "worm" in comparison to the meatball and abandoning it is sacrilege. Way better then the dumbass old logo.
