Project Mercury blueprint 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.

Shown in first photo, L to R: silver; white; cream.

The tie is made of a soft microfiber, having almost the same hand as real silk and is printed with high-quality, non-toxic, waterbased ink. 3.5-4" wide at it's widest point and 58" long. All new materials! Vegan safe.
