NASA celebrates worm logo with original designer
On November 6, we hosted a panel discussion at NASA Headquarters with worm designer Richard Dunn about the design and cultural significance of the NASA worm logo. In 1992, the worm was retired but brought back for limited use to complement the agency’s official insignia, known as the “meatball”.
“I can’t express how rewarding it is to have it again. NASA will always have a special place in my heart.”
Learn more about “Worms” at Episode July 24, 2020 From “Houston We Have a Podcast,” the official podcast of NASA’s Johnson Space Center.
A NASA telescope has discovered a record-breaking black hole
Astronomers using NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and the James Webb Space Telescope have discovered the most distant black hole ever seen in X-ray light.
The black hole is undergoing an unprecedented initial phase of growth as its mass becomes that of its parent galaxy.
This result could explain how some of the first supermassive black holes in the universe formed.
The first scientific pictures of the Euclid mission have been released
On November 7, the Euclid mission released its first scientific image, including one of the Perseus Cluster, a group of thousands of galaxies about 240 million light-years from Earth. The European Space Agency (ESA) runs Euclid with contributions from NASA.
It will begin regular scientific operations for dark matter and dark energy research in early 2024.
