About this design
Space Shuttle T-shirt
On 12th April 1981 the first Space Shuttle (Columbia) was launched, pathing the way for Space Shuttles Challenger, Discovery, Atlantis and Endeavour. As the first reusable spacecraft the Space Shuttle has played a pivotal role in space exploration.
Famously labelled the most complex machine ever built by man, the Space Shuttle has been characterised by incredible triumphs and devastating tragedies. After 30 years of service, 135 launches and 21,000 orbits the Shuttle has finally retired.
Manned space missions will continue long after the old space shuttles have collected dust in various museums. However, it's best to not forget the impact the space shuttle program has had… building space stations, placing Hubble in orbit (and then repairing it), it was there for the first U.S. woman in space as well as the first African American. Admire this amazing machine's legacy by wearing our Space Shuttle t shirt!
