NASA dicit:
NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket will power NASA’s next-generation Moon missions through the agency’s Artemis program. NASA’s iconic “Worm” logo is depicted on the side of each of the SLS rocket’s solid rocket boosters. The letters are 8.3 feet tall with the entire worm logo stretching 28.7 feet from end to end on the boosters, which are taller than the Statue of Liberty. The simple, red logo was first introduced to the public in 1975. The original NASA insignia — nicknamed “the meatball” — rides to space on the top of the SLS rocket. The worm marking also appears on the Orion spacecraft riding atop the SLS rocket.
