Collection Item Summary:

Space shuttle astronaut Pamela Melroy wore this shirt as pilot of the STS-92 mission on Discovery in 2000, 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. NASA issued regulation pants, shorts, and sleepwear for shuttle crews, but they were allowed to select and wear their own shirts.

Crews enjoyed choosing a variety of shirt styles and colors, often designed with mission insignia on the front. Melroy gave this shirt, and various other personal possessions and papers, to the Museum in 2018.
