NASA Chose 12-Year-Old Boy’s Logo For Its Moon Mission Patch Design Competition

“I made this design because I want to represent (the) Orion mission from Earth, the moon, to Mars.”

  • Twelve-year-old Teng Wei Rui was chosen among 10,000 candidates from around the world for the “Forward to the Moon” challenge.
  • He is one of the five winners announced by NASA.
  • In his entry, he stated there that he chose the design because he wanted to represent the Orion mission from Earth, moon, to Mars.

The United States’ National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) recently published a statement announcing the flat winners of the design contest for its additional mission. Of the five winners announced by NASA, one of them is a 12-year-old boy from Miri, Sarawak, Malaysia.

Teng Wei Rui was chosen among 10,000 candidates from around the world for the “Forward to the Moon” challenge. In this competition, students design and animate the Forward to Moon mission. This contest is inspired by NASA’s plan to send the first woman and the next man by 2024.

An excerpt from NASA’s statement announcing the winners read:

“Since 1965, every mission to space has had its own mission patch design created by the astronauts who made the trip. Before heading off to space, the crew works together to design a patch to represent themselves and the mission. Tynker recently conducted the Forward to the Moon Mission Patch Design Coding Challenge for students across the globe.”

Teng Wei Rui is a first-level student who studies computer programming at the Real Fun Learning Center. According to the young boy, the design he made is inspired by Orion’s mission from “Earth, the Moon, to Mars.”

He shared that he chose the line “Go Further to Our Future” because he said that the mission is a representation of our future to live on the moon and Mars.

Ishhaq Ziyam, a 6th grader from Colombo, Sri Lanka, was also among the winners, as well as Neal Apte, a 3rd grader from Palo Alto, CA, USA; Madison Morgan, and 8th grader from Lewiston, ID, USA; and Paxton Summers, a 3rd grader from Baltimore, MD, USA.
