It is the first time that the sleek typographic logo, designed in the 1970s, has been used in almost thirty years.
NASA is reviving its worm logo for the first time since 1992.
The red typographic logo, now mostly used for souvenirs and merchandise, will appear on the side of the Falcon 9 rocket for its scheduled launch in May.
The Falcon 9 rocket launch marks the first time that American astronauts will be sent to space on American rockets in almost a decade.
In 2011, the Atlantis space shuttle became the last American space system to ferry astronauts to and from space. Since then, NASA has used a Russian system, the Soyuz, to transport its astronauts.
