Project Mercury blueprint silk necktie - this is the second in our series of "Rocket Science" designs. The Mercury rocket launched the first American into space. Mercury laid the groundwork for Project Gemini and the follow-on Apollo moon-landing program.
This print extends high up on the tie, approx. 19" (48 cm) from the bottom point; perfect to be seen from under a vest or jacket.
This design depicts a mashup of once classified data including NASA's blueprints, technical drawings and documents dating from 1959-1962: The Project Mercury Familiarization Manual; Project Mercury Maintenance Manual; and The National Security Action_Memorandum No. 237, Project MERCURY Manned Space Flight (MA-9). Original illustration.
