US Space Force Launches Neil Armstrong Satellite NFT with Star Atlas Metaverse

Star Atlas, a blockchain-based metaverse offering space exploration with next-generation multiplayer gaming technology, will launch the first-ever USSF-licensed NFT on Tuesday, June 15. The NFT, a limited-edition meta-poster titled “Star Atlas Legends: Armstrong Forever,” will commemorate the June 17th launch of the USSF satellite bearing Neil Armstrong's name in honor of the famed astronaut’s dedication to space exploration.

“Star Atlas Legends: Armstrong Forever NFT with Space Force honors space exploration for our Atlassians and the future of the emerging metaverse,” says Michael Wagner, co-founder and CEO of Star Atlas. “We are thrilled to be a part of this historic milestone, as the first metaverse to partner with the USSF for a unique and one-of-a-kind NFT. This partnership unlocks the potential of blockchain technology. It immerses our community in the growing adoption of real-time graphics, multiplayer video-game, and decentralized financial technologies on the Solana blockchain.”

The Neil Armstrong meta-poster is released as a surprise for all space exploration enthusiasts in the NFT art collection titled “Re-Birth: Genesis of a Metaverse” and a first in the USSF campaign, representing a new avenue for Atlassians. The surprise drop offers Star Atlas users in-game perks linked to the meta-poster including an in-game Neil Armstrong uniform patch, orbiting satellite add-on for a spaceship, and an in-game vintage spacesuit. In addition, posters will be minted into resalable NFTs available throughout the Star Atlas metaverse.

“Released in the inaugural USSF-licensed NFT collection, this meta-poster honors the expansion of space exploration and leverages the permanence of blockchain to honor the Armstrong estate and the USSF's commitment to educating, inspiring and protecting global security through orbit,” said Travis Cloyd, CEO of Worldwide XR.
