Must have NASA Artemis Program Official T-shirt Kids Youth Boys Girls
Wear your Artemis gear proudly! NASA is committed to landing American astronauts, including the first woman and the next man, on the Moon by 2024. Through the agency’s Artemis lunar exploration program, NASA will use innovative new technologies and systems to explore more of the Moon than ever before. NASA will collaborate with our commercial and international partners to establish sustainable missions by 2028. And then NASA will use what they learn on and around the Moon to take the next giant leap – sending astronauts to Mars.
Artemis 1 (originally known as Exploration Mission-1 or EM-1 until the introduction of the Artemis program in 2019, when it was renamed) is the second flight of the un-crewed Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle to be launched on the first flight of the Space Launch System. The launch is planned from Launch Complex 39B at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida at an unspecified date after June 2020. The Orion spacecraft will spend approximately 3 weeks in space, including 6 days in a retrograde orbit around the Moon. It is planned to be followed by Artemis 2, originally known as Exploration Mission-2 or EM-2 in 2023. Item in stock unless noted above. A ComputerGear exclusive. (#1C279)
With Earth Blue, Rocket Red and Lunar Silver for colors, every part of the logo has meaning:
THE A: The A symbolizes an arrowhead from Artemis’ quiver and represents launch.
TIP OF THE A: The tip of the A of Artemis points beyond the Moon and signifies that our efforts at the Moon are not the conclusion, but rather the preparation for all that lies beyond.
EARTH CRESCENT: The crescent of the Earth at the bottom shows missions from humanity's perspective. From Earth we go. Back to Earth all that we learn and develop will return. This crescent also visualizes Artemis’ bow as the source from which all energy and effort is sent.
TRAJECTORY: The trajectory moves from left to right through the crossbar of the “A” opposite that of Apollo. Thus highlighting the distinct differences in our return to the Moon. The trajectory is red to symbolize our path to Mars.
MOON: The Moon is our next destination and a stepping stone for Mars. It is the focus of all Artemis efforts.
