Minerva Mission T-shirt for Women
A deconstructed design of the official Minerva mission patch with ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti’s name printed on the back.
The Minerva mission is ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti’s second expedition to the International Space Station. The name of the mission takes inspiration from the Roman goddess of wisdom. During her mission, Samantha will support science and research in microgravity to advance our scientific knowledge on Earth. The design of the patch represents the sacred owl of Minerva, whose eye symbolises a yellow Moon, casting a white glow over a round Earth. The owl’s beak hints at the shape of the International Space Station and the two lines represent Samantha’s two missions to space. Waves of ever darker blue make up the body of the owl and encourage us to move farther into deep space. The owl looks to the right, to the future of space exploration.
