On May 29, 1999 the crew of STS-96 aboard space shuttle Discovery became the first in history to dock with the International Space Station. The crew took inspiration from the ISS for their patch design along with an artistic interpretation for the patch created by a student. Patch highlights the major themes of the mission including human spaceflight, the ISS, and earth-directed research. The star represents the countries involved with the building of the ISS (Europe, US, Russia, Canada and Japan), and the blended colores of Red, White, and Blue represent nationalities of the crew that flew on STS-96 (US, Canada, and Russia).

On our final day of IAC 2022, we wanted to feature the Global Networking Forum session, Space Inspiration: How Space and Ariane are Inspiring Artistic Creation 📸

This panel featured General Manager of Avenir Myriam Aïlo, French Photographer. Mathieu Cesar, and Music Producer Pyramid. These speakers all discussed their project collaborations with Arianespace. Of the three artists, two showcased some of their work. Aïlo has been a part of a team that is creating a line of clothing pieces that are #SpaceInspired by Ariane's rockets. She even wore a jacket on stage that they have created, that easily folds down to fit into its own front pocket. Pyramid has since been working on 6 songs that show the progression of Arianespace from past, present, and future. 🎶

All the panelists were honored to work on these projects. These artists pulled a lot of their inspiration from their space wonders as kids! 💫

We love the inspirational concepts and projects that have been influenced by Arianespace! 🚀

Today, during day 3 of IAC 2022, NASA Deputy Administrator Pam Melroy announced updates and changes made to NASA's Moon to Mars Objectives. 🔭

Originally, there were 50 draft objectives developed earlier this year. After discussions and feedback from over 5000 stakeholders, Now, their Moon to Mars goals are reflected across 63 final objectives. 🧑‍🚀

Along with these edits and additions, NASA addressed the key benefits to the Moon to Mars objectives. The benefits of Science, Inspiration, and National Posture played a guiding role in the development of these goals in conjunction with stakeholder feedback. 🚀
