WATCH HOW IT IS MADE!
Aerolite Meteorites is the first company in the world, to the best of our knowledge, to create t-shirts made with actual dust from the Moon and Mars! A bit skeptical?
Watch us trace each step of the process for creating our new line of meteorite-dust-infused merchandise from start to finish in this one-on-one video filmed, on location, at Aladdin Graphics in Tucson, AZ. All meteorite dust is collected from officially classified Lunar and Martian meteorites.
While it is illegal to own Apollo return samples, we obtain moon dust from meteorites that originated on the Moon, fell to Earth, were found, and identified in the lab. The Moon rocks that Apollo astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and the other moonwalkers brought back to Earth did, however, help meteorite scientists to identify a small number of meteorites as being of lunar origin.
How do we get moon dust? During the laboratory preparation process a larger meteorite is sawn into smaller pieces, producing moondust, not unlike sawdust. We have added this dust to the white ink used during the screen printing process to create this design, printed on the front of this tee. Your Moon t-shirt contains actual dust from a meteorite carried here all the way from the moon!!
