Insignia of the Altair Project a part of Project Constellation
Quoting Orion Project Manager Skip Hatfield:
"Obviously, the blue sphere that's in the 'O' of Orion is [a] representation of Earth, and that is our departure point for our journey of exploration," began Hatfield."... "The star field in this particular logo is designed to be a representation of the Orion star system," ... "There are 10 stars in the background that represent the 10 NASA centers who have an integral part in helping us be successful on the Constellation exploration vision." ... "The three stars that are in the foreground of the image represent Orion's belt as well as a representation of the exploration goals of 'Moon, Mars and beyond'." ... "And of course the red vector represents our path from the Earth on to these outer destinations,"
