The NASA Meatball Emblem Insignia is the original NASA Insignia designed in the late 1950s. This Emblem was later altered slightly so that the vector extended the circular border. The original meaning behind the design included a sphere to represent a planet, stars to represent space, a red vector to represent aeronautics and the orbit to represent space travel.
