We hope you enjoy the Mariner 4 Hand Colored First TV Image of Mars Sustainable T-Shirt. Mariner 4 left Earth on November 28, 1964 and provided the first close-range images of Mars. When the data arrived everyone was very curious about what the first image would look like, and it was faster to print the color codes in 1’s and 0’s on ticker tape and hand color the pixels using pastels, rather than wait for the current systems to process the Martian data into an image. Richard “Dick” Grumm and his team (employees of the Telecommunications Section at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory) did the work. We included the Color Key used to convert numbers to hand colored pixels, on the sleeve. It may look like any regular tee, but it’s actually far from ordinary. This shirt is made from organic cotton and recycled poly rPET blend that makes the fabric more durable and heavyweight. It saves at least 4 plastic bottles from ending up in a landfill, or worse. So, if you’re searching for a unique and sustainable way to express yourself, look no further than this!
