Vostok – Capsule/Spacecraft

£ 29.00

Vostok was the first manned spacecraft in history. It has been designed with automatic navigation to the Sun and manual navigation to the Earth. On the 12th of April 1961 Yuri Gagarin completed a journey into outer space and successfully returned to Earth on Vostok spacecraft. Prior to sending a human into space, the spacecraft has successfully completed the same journey with animals and mannequins on board. In total there have been 13 launches, 6 manned and 7 unmanned.

Восток был первым пилотируемым космическим аппаратом в истории человечества. Он был спроектирован с автоматической ориентацией на Солнце и ручной на Землю. 12 Апреля 1961 Юрий Гагарин успешно совершил полет в космос. До отправления человека в космос, были произведены успешные запуски с собаками и манекенами на борту. Всего было запущено 13 кораблей Восток: 6 пилотируемых и 7 беспилотных.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
