Voyager by Guy Pendlebury

Launched in 1977 to take advantage of the alignment of the massive planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune both of these spacecraft have left our Solar System and are now exploring and transmitting details of interstellar space. In 2012 Voyager 1 almost certainly entered interstellar space at a velocity of about 62,000 kmph. The evidence for this was a sharp increase in high energy particles striking the space craft. It was now facing a particle headwind rather than the Solar driven tailwind it had enjoyed hitherto. Both these craft are expected to continue transmitting usable data until about 2025. They have been extraordinarily successful missions. Congratulations and thank you NASA.

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.
