    FYI..... I discussed this logo amongst friends and we came up with a color version based on what we think we know about the logo. The sketch, colors and shapes are not perfect but good enough to show what we’re thinking. Would love to hear your comments and alternate suggestions.

    I'm also thinking along similar lines and the dialogue from 1.15-1.25 says "... the best single piece of equipment to recover capsules, nose cones and instrument panels, was a free swimming man, his eyes, ears and intelligence".

    I wonder if how the logo is created might also provide some clues. Here's some stills (left to right, top to bottom):

    Jay,
    I think you may be on to something. In the first screen shot, the fish could also represent an eye. The cone or horn represents an ear horn or ear trumpet, which starts to be drawn in the upper right screen shot. Intelligence or the mind is represented by the circle. This fits with the dialog you highlighted - well done!

    Now these items are initially presented detached and not connected/random, but in reality they are united/combined as expressed in the final image; all within one large rectangle. The large rectangle itself is dissected into 4 smaller rectangles. These rectangles may symbolise the universal "Golden Ratio." They are related to each other logarithmically. Astronauts are related to outer space while Aquanauts are related to inner space. Man, fish, ocean, earth, outer space, the universe are seen as separate entities but are actually one; all related. Mice, monkey, man, go into space and return to the sea; all the same. The TV show highlights that technology fails to find a capsule in the ocean but man doesn't because originally man came from the sea. He is related to the sea and knows it innately. "Everything is. Because its suppose to be." Its a universality message or symbol.

    That’s some creative thinking..... and to my surprise, the “Golden Ratio” was just a topic of discussion on the tv show, “God Friended Me,” just minutes ago. Amazing!

    Gosh... I sure do wish the creator would speak up!

    When you say "creator" do you mean God or the artist who created the logo? :)
    God speaks to us all the time; we just don't take the time to listen...

    Gee, I'm surprised that @Jay_Antipodean didn't notice these "budgie smugglers." :)

    I'm going to go with it being an eye at first(eye symbol), that is searching the globe (round symbol), for nose cones (rocket symbol), under the water (fish symbol).

    The theory of the fish being cut in half symbolizing man under water makes perfect sense to me, but I'm wondering if the fish cut in half means part eye (looking) part fish (underwater).....or even just an eye looking above and below the water for a nose cone?
