Deep Space Atomic Clock Adult T-Shirt

A very cool new design!

NASA's Deep Space Atomic Clock is a critical step toward enabling spacecraft to safely, independently navigate in deep space rather than rely on the time-consuming process of receiving directions from Earth. Developed at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

The clock is the first timekeeper stable enough to map a spacecraft's trajectory in deep space and small enough to be housed onboard. The technology demonstration is validating a miniaturized, ultra-precise mercury-ion atomic clock orders of magnitude more stable than what’s used on spacecraft today.
