Turtle Aeronautics and Space Administration
If turtles decided to go to space, sea turtles would definitely be the ones chosen to go. Land turtles would fail miserably trying to navigate in zero gravity. Look at an African Tortoise and try to imagine that thing in a space suit. Yeah right. Sea turtles live in an aquatic environment, and NASA uses underwater training to prepare astronauts for space travel. It makes so much sense. Sea turtles are definitely Turtlenauts.
I tried to give the backs and sides the feel of a spacesuit covered in patches. Turtles wouldn't journey in the name of the United States, however. They would journey for all turtle-kind, hence the change in the flag patch.
