Original Russian Space Race poster.
Translation (bottom): "Soviet people, be proud! You've paved the way for space travel".
During the 1950s, the USSR's Space Program served as a source of pride for the country's people, and the Soviet Government celebrated the success of Russian cosmonauts through propaganda posters produced in runs of tens of thousands. The Way to the Stars Soviet T-shirt brings to life an authentic design from one of these posters and shows a red rocket springing forth from a massive red hand meant to symbolize the people of Soviet Russia. At the bottom, the white lettering reads, "Soviet people, be proud! You've paved the way for space travel." The graphic appears on a 100 per cent ringspun cotton short sleeve unisex tee.
