NASA has revealed five hidden messages it has scattered about its latest spacecraft, Artemis I Orion.

The unmanned ship was filled with special items as it zoomed on and around the moon before returning to Earth on Sunday.

Shaun the Sheep, four Lego minifigures and 245 silver Snoopy pins were among the loot on board.

But the space agency has also planted some secret tributes.

The red bird in the upper right commemorates Mark Geyer, a former Orion program manager and director of the Johnson Space Center.

He passed away last year.

The bird represents the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team, of which Geyer was a big fan.

There are some odd dots above the Callisto Alexa technology demo area in the center.

They’re actually Morse code symbols that spell out “Charlie,” in reference to Deputy Orion Program Manager Charlie Lundquist.

Lundquist – who died in 2020 – played a large role in the development of Orion.

Below Callisto in front of the pilot’s seat you will see some numbers.

These represent the country codes for the United States, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Spain and the Netherlands, which participated in the construction of the spacecraft’s European service module.

Elsewhere you may have seen the letters CBAGF – they are on the right side next to the pilot’s seat and under one of the windows.

CBAGF is sheet music for Frank Sinatra’s 1964 hit Fly Me to the Moon.

And finally, at the top of the pilot’s seat, there is a binary code for the number 18.

This is to honor NASA’s voyage history with the Apollo program to the moon and to celebrate the return of a manned spacecraft to the moon after Apollo 17 for the Artemis generation.
