The whole site is worth browsing for some wonderfully retro sci-fi designs, but in particular I can't imagine anyone here who wouldn't qualify for this Space Cadet T-shirt!

Along the same spirit, this t-shirt speaks to my inner (and outer) space collector.

Not really a T-shirt, but this Saturn V jersey from ElevenGear is perfect for the space cadet that also enjoys biking.
In a style evocative of the grand rocket itself. When it's time to make use of the term "light it up," throw this jersey on. We've got two zipper styles; a 3/4 length hidden zipper and a full-zip jersey. Both have three roomy pockets on the back for your mylar jacket, Tang and space food sticks. Made of Aries Micro Plus sublimated fabric, Designed and Manufactured in California. Ships with a mess of Saturn V temporary tattoos (which were made in Arizona since you were wondering).

ThinkGeek's Rats! Space Shuttle Program T-Shirt:
Geeks love the Space Shuttle Program. After all, it was a huge write-in campaign by Star Trek fans that got the first orbiter named Enterprise instead of its intended name, Constitution. We'll admit it. We're gonna miss it.

But... but...

For one generation, the question was "Where were you when Kennedy was shot?" All our customers remember the moment they found out about 9/11. But for a 10-15 year window of Americans in their 30s and 40s, the defining tragedy of our generation was the Challenger disaster. We know exactly what we were doing when we heard about it. We weren't around (or aware enough) to have been shaped by the moon landing or Apollo 13, and Hubble's combination of unmanned-ness plus its rocky start got it mentally written off. For this group of people, the Space Shuttle is synonymous with the U.S. space program. So the retirement of NASA's Space Shuttle Program is bittersweet for us. Okay. Honestly? There's nothing sweet about it. It's just bitter. If you're in the room with us when we watch the final launch, that's totally allergies. Or dust. Or um... eye spouts. It's a meteorological phenomenon.

... this Saturn V jersey from ElevenGear
I'm afraid that the female model of this jersey throws the ol' Saturn V aerodynamics out the window...

From Eleven Gear's ad for its Saturn V jersey and bib shorts:

Please note that riders wearing Saturn V products should do so with caution on their first few rides, specially on short steep climbs, onramps and the like as we have had a few reports of riders indadvertantly achieving escape velocity and inserting themselves into low earth orbit.
Let alone the technical contradiction between escape velocity and orbit velocity, it's an enticing proposition!

My favourites are the first two items on here.

They were present at the autographs show in Jersey in 2005.

Their main production deals with spacesuits and spacesuit parts repros.

Appropriate for today's start of the World Cup...
"Buzz Aldrin" Always Sounded Like a Sports Name
We want to give space exploration a whole new attitude. It's hip, it's now, it's extreme! So the golf thing is out. I mean, come on. Your dad golfs. Your grandpa golfs. Golf is for upper-middle-class white retirees. That's not our man-on-the-Moon's speed at all. Let's send a real gnarly dude up there to base-jump into a crater! Or do some BMX tricks or something! I bet you could get serious air up there.

I mean -- not air air, but you know what I mean.

Or -- hey, soccer! Why not soccer, right? It's cool, it's fast, it's got a real global vibe. Plus the equipment is super cheap, which, let's face it, we're not exactly flush, budgetarily.

Designed for all the Team Jacob werewolf fans, no doubt, but would be fun for space enthusiasts too...

"The Moon Made Me Do It" t-shirt.

Saw this online and thought that people interested in this forum might like it. It's got two pictures of Apollo, but after that there are many silhouettes of robotic probes.

It would be so much better if they didn't put a shuttle patch on the Moonwalkers shoulder.

Other than that it's a great design.

Strange one. Looks like General Grievous from the Star Wars movie.

From Brian Snell Art:
The term 'Shuttle Hugger' has been used to describe those in favor of continuing the shuttle program. Unfortunately, some use the term to be derogatory. This design turns that negativity around and uses the term to be funny. This design is for all of the space-loving shuttle huggers out there who support the shuttle program and all it has done for our country.

Two new T-shirts for the space set:
  • From Discovery Channel, the Mythbusters "Apollo 11" T-Shirt
    NASA's Photos of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing are Fake... BUSTED

  • From ThinkGeek, the limited edition Yuri's Night 2011 T-Shirt (and Babydoll)
    Imagine what it must have been like to be the very first person to see the Earth from a non-Earth vantage point. You get to confirm that the world is, indeed, round. You can tell what's above the clouds. You see how blue the planet is with your own eyes. That honor was cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin's on April 12, 1961. He and the Vostok 1 spent a total of 108 minutes lifting off, making a single orbit of the Earth, and coming back down safely. Ground control wasn't sure until 25 minutes in whether the ship was in stable orbit, and much of the journey Gagarin was out of communication with the various ground stations. The Vostok was on autopilot, and, in fact, Gagarin's only way to control it was in a sealed envelope he would have to break open if he needed to override the automatic controls. Fortunately, for both Gagarin and the future of manned spaceflight, almost everything went off without a hitch.

    The rest, as they say, is history.

I got a nice NASA Meatball T-Shirt at JCPenny's men's department this week for $10. There were about six of them in the graphic t's section.
