STS-125 Pique Polo
Item #: STS125POLO
STS-125 Mission Polo Our STS-125 Mission Polo is absolutely sharp! This polo is black with white trim on the collar and sleeves. It features a 4" STS-125 Logo embroidered on the left breast. The red trim around the logo makes it really pop and stand out. This polo is a high quality Harriton, 100% cotton pique polo. STS-125 has been delayed until at least May 2009 to prepare a second data handling unit replacement for the telescope. The current target date is May 12th. The mission will be flown by Space Shuttle Atlantis. Atlantis will carry two new instruments to the HST, in addition to a replacement Fine Guidance Sensor, six new gyroscopes and batteries to allow the telescope to continue to function at least through 2013. The crew will also install a new thermal blanket layer to provide improved insulation, and a "Soft-Capture mechanism" to aid in the safe de-orbiting of the spacecraft by an unmanned spacecraft at the end of its operational lifespan.
