ISRO Invites Citizens to Design Logo for 1st National Space Day

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has launched a logo design contest to commemorate the inaugural National Space Day on August 23, 2024. The date marks the first anniversary of India's historic landing of the Chandrayaan-3 Vikram lander on the lunar south polar region.

Why this matters: This contest represents a significant opportunity for public engagement with India's space program, fostering a sense of national pride and ownership in the country's scientific achievements. As India continues to make strides inspace exploration, this initiative can inspire a new generation of scientists, engineers, and innovators.

The theme for this year's National Space Day is "Touching Lives while Touching the Moon: India's Space Saga". ISRO aims to encourage public participation in the celebrations by inviting citizens to design a logo that embodies the spirit of India's space achievements. The chosen design should resonate with the theme, leaving a lasting impression and enabling clear reproduction across various mediums.

The public is invited to submit their logo designs as digital creations in jpg, png, or pdf format to nsd2024isro.gov.in on or before May 20, 2024. The selected design will be exhibited on different brochures, banners, merchandise, and more related to National Space Day-2024.

ISRO stated, "ISRO's commitment to Space science is inseparable from its commitment to society and for encouraging public participation in this mega event, ISRO/DOS solicits from the citizens of India to unleash their creativity by designing a logo that embodies the spirit of our nation's space achievements."

India's space program has made significant strides in recent years. The successful landing of Chandrayaan-3's Vikram lander on the Moon's south polar region on August 23, 2023, was a major milestone. It made India the first country to achieve a soft landing on the lunar south pole and the fourth country overall to successfully land on the Moon.

The Chandrayaan-3 mission, which was launched on July 14, 2023, aimed to demonstrate safe and soft landing on the lunar surface, rover roving on the Moon, and in-situ scientific experiments. The mission's lander and rover are equipped with scientific instruments to study the lunar geology, seismography, surface chemical composition, thermo-physical characteristics of topsoil, and composition of the tenuous lunar atmosphere.

The logo design contest for National Space Day 2024 represents an opportunity for citizens to engage with India's space achievements and contribute to the celebrations. The chosen logo will serve as a visual representation of India's space saga and its impact on people's lives. With the deadline of May 20, 2024, for submissions, the public has ample time to unleash their creativity and design a logo that captures the essence of this historic occasion.
