Collection Item Summary:

Space shuttle astronaut Pamela Melroy wore this T-shirt as pilot of the STS-112 mission on Atlantis in 2002, the second of her three shuttle flights to the International Space Station. The STS-112 crew delivered and installed a large solar array truss segment to expand the station. Melroy served as spacewalk choreographer to keep the crew on schedule for these tasks. 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. This shirt also has a larger color version of the mission patch on the back.

Melroy gave the shirt, and various other personal possessions and papers, to the Museum in 2018.
