The actual NASA logo, known as meatball between NASA employees, was replaced with a logo called the ¨worm¨ that after sometime was replaced again with the ¨meatball¨ logo because most people likes more that logo, and in between there was a lost design that was mean to join both logos, the unofficial “wormball” was proposed as a “make everyone happy” design for the NASA insignia.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA /ˈnæsə/) is an independent agency of the executive branch of the United States federal government responsible for the civilian space program as well as aeronautics and aerospace research.[note 1] President Dwight D. Eisenhower established NASA in 1958 with a distinctly civilian (rather than military) orientation encouraging peaceful applications in space science. The National Aeronautics and Space Act was passed on July 29, 1958, disestablishing NASA's predecessor, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA). The new agency became operational on October 1, 1958. (wikipedia)
