KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FL. (June 7, 2012) – Space Florida – the State of Florida’s aerospace economic development agency – has released a call for entries to the community to design a logo for the Nano-Satellite Launch Challenge.
The Nano-Sat Launch Challenge is being managed through the Space Florida Small Satellite Research Center (SFSSRC) and will take place in 2013. The purpose of the Challenge is to bring forth innovations in propulsion and other technologies, as well as operations and management relevant to safe, low-cost, small payload delivery systems accessing Low Earth Orbit. These technologies will benefit future launch systems and emerging commercial space capabilities in government, commercial and academic sectors. The Nano-Sat Launch Challenge will support NASA’s Centennial Challenge Program. More information can be found at www.spaceflorida.gov/nano-sat-launch-challenge.
Space Florida will keep the community updated on the progression of the contest and submission of the logos via its Facebook Business Page, and an album will host entries to the logo contest. The guidelines for this contest are as follows:
- Logos are to be submitted via email to Angelica DeLuccia, firstname.lastname@example.org, in .JPG or PDF format only. (Hand drawings will also be accepted in a scanned JPG or PDF format.)
- Logos are not to resemble the NASA logo in any form.
- The deadline for all logo submissions will be July 2, 2012 by 5:00 p.m. EDT.
The winner of the logo contest will be announced on the Space Florida Facebook Page by July 13, 2012 and the selected logo will be utilized in all promotional materials tied to the Nano-Sat Launch Challenge. The winner will also be invited to view launches of the Nano-Sat Challenge taking place at KSC.
