NASA 2050

What will NASA’s profile look like in 2050? While the agency still holds a place in the American zeitgeist, many people believe it became defunct with the conclusion of the shuttle program in 2011. The Apollo era saw a NASA that enjoyed broad public support and embodied the aspirational nature of the country despite the political and social unrest of the time. Envisioning a NASA that occupies the spotlight of the American imagination, I created a brand that positions the agency as the transcontinental railroad of spacetravel.
