Agreed on the quality of the shirt, probably because I love the VSS Enterprise. Shirt Please!
i think you would deffo need rubber gloves if you wanted to wash up with those hands! They look so cool!
So many greedy people just want the shirt. I love the graphic because it displays technology that is long-awaited.
If only NASA would use a spaceplane like the one pictured here instead of an energy-wasting rocket that has to overcome gravity instead of using inertia to carry it to altitude before it used that same inertia plus a small push to send it out into space.
Touch-sensitive "skin" for amputees is very important so they don't crush delicate things when they pick them up with their prosthetic.
Ih the crazy stuff going on nowadays. I wonder how an amputee would do fingerprinting?
This shirt is awesome!
