NASA Artemis I Mega Moon Rocket Rolls Out to Launch Pad

This is a big week for NASA's Artemis moon program.

The jumbo-sized Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft capsule are scheduled to roll out to the launchpad for testing ahead of the Artemis I around-the-moon mission.

NASA is giving a shoutout to the 1970s through the use of its classic "worm" logo, which earned its nickname from the way the letters look like fat, bendy worms.

The logo was retired in the early '90s, but continued to show up on merchandise like T-shirts.

More recently, NASA revived it for the crewed SpaceX Falcon 9 Demo-2 mission in 2020.

The Orion capsule will also have the honor of wearing the wormy finery as it hurtles into space, creating a visual link between NASA's present and past.
