This summer is crowded with spaced-themed events, as we honor first humanity steps made on the Moon, by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. So, NASA t-shirts are definitely a hit for the nation.
On July 16, 1969, the crew of NASA’s Apollo 11 mission launched on an audacious adventure. Four days later, on July 20, Armstrong and Aldrin landed a small spaceship on the lunar surface. They planted their boots into the ground along with an American flag. Seems like, this operation represented the U.S. accomplishing a seemingly impossible goal. Also, it placed the US as a global leader in science and technology.
Therefore, fifty years later, the world is remembering the historic mission and its impact on society and science. Institutions around the country are hosting events highlighting the first lunar landing. So save the date in your calendars! Even more, do not worry, for the tees. We have some prodigious tips, from our long-time friend, DBH.
