Collection Item Summary:

Space shuttle astronaut Pamela Melroy wore this shirt as a crewmember for the STS-92 mission, carried out on Discovery in 2000. It was the first of her three shuttle flights to the International Space Station. The STS-92 crew delivered and installed one of the large solar array truss segments and a pressured mating adapter to permit more spacecraft to dock there. Shuttle crews typically chose a variety of shirt styles, often with mission insignia on the front, to wear at work, in training, and in space. This shirt also has a design on the back, celebrating STS-92 and Discovery as the 100th shuttle flight.

Melroy gave this shirt, which she did not wear in space, and various other personal possessions and papers to the Museum in 2018.
