I have been at this for a month and I think this is the final art. 23 selected missions outside of Earth orbit. I intend to sell this as a tee on chopshopstore.com and donate 20% of profits to The Planetary Society. We do pretty well with this kind of design having already successfully sold many copies of our robots, aliens, monsters, rock stars… etc. I always wanted to do one based on planetary exploration just for my own satisfaction, but I think people will buy this as well.

Coincidentally, we are helping Radiolab raise funds by selling some designs and that audience is likely to also like the space mission design.

Let me know what you think and if there are any omissions that beg revision. Keep in mind that the design makes it very difficult to move things around. But if a number of you think I REALLY need to drop a Venera for Magellan… I can probably do that.

i was hoping that would be the reaction. I always find a lack of nicely designed space merch whenever I look, so… I figure why not just make my own.

I might also make a poster version with an expanded number of included missions. Can't easily add more to the tshirt space.

I will post the link when it is up. I will likely have it go pre-order as the printer that is doing this is fantastic… Storenvy (in case anyone is thinking making tees). No way it will come out badly.

Emily suggested I add Hayabusa. So I ditched Mars Express for it. Now the only ESA thing on here I can recall would be the Huygens probe with Cassini.

Could you post a decoder ring? I'm not up on all my silhouettes. smile.gif I can recognize the Pioneers, Voyagers, and Cassini on the outside, but I don't know the one to the left of Galileo at the 11 o'clock position.

I think it's Ulysses, so that another more or less ESA mission.

Agreed; it's beyond sweet!

Looking forward to sporting it amongst the masses for puzzled looks & the occasional interested inquiry; outreach comes in many forms. wink.gif
