The finishing touches are painted on the American flag that embellishes the southwest side of the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The flag and the NASA logo, which is on the southeast side, have both been refreshed with new paint. The flag and logo were last painted in 1998, honoring NASA's 40th anniversary. The flag spans an area 209 feet by 110 feet, or about 23, 437 square feet. Each stripe is 9 feet wide and each star is 6 feet in diameter. The logo, which is known as the "meatball," measures 110 feet by 132 feet, or about 12,300 square feet. The building stands 525-feet tall. Photo credit: NASA/George Shelton
