Exclusive Smithsonian Apollo Lunar Module
We love NASA to the Moon and back
"Plume deflector." We're going to install one of those on our hat at the Renaissance festival. You wouldn't believe the number of times we've almost put somebody's eye out....
Set your brains to 50 years ago and the Apollo missions (it's okay if you didn't exist then - many of us are in imagination territory, too). Although this image reads "1969," that must be the date of the illustration or the date of the prototype. This is the same diagram that was published in the Apollo Program Press Information Notebook in 1972. The Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum points out that since it features a compartment for storing the Lunar Roving Vehicle, we know this was a diagram for the configuration of the Lunar Module used in Apollos 15, 16, and 17, the missions that carried rovers. So it could have been diagrammed in 1969, but this little guy actually get shot into space until 1971 or 1972. Wheeeeee!
Apollo's Lunar Module is printed in white ink on the front of this black, 100% cotton shirt. Machine wash cold. Tumble dry low or lay flat to dry. Imported.
