RS-25 Engine (SLS & Space Shuttle SSME) Hard Enamel Pin
The RS-25 engine! Its history can be traced back to the 60's during development for an upgraded Saturn V engine. Designed by Rocketdyne (now Aerojet Rocketdyne), they were used as the Space Shuttle's 3 main engines and after being retired will now be used as the 4 engines on the SLS core stage. The RS-25 burns cryogenic liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen. Improvements in design and manufacturing over the years now have the engine producing 418,000 lbf at sea level with a specific impulse of 366 seconds at sea level. An amazing engine that has taken many astronauts to space, and soon to the moon! Get your pin today!

F-1 Engine (Saturn V 1st Stage) Hard Enamel Pin
The powerful F-1 engine, as an enamel pin! 5 of these engines powered the first stage of the Saturn V rocket, currently the only rocket to have ever taken humans to the Moon. Producing 1,522,000lbf at sea level, with a specific impulse of 263s, these engines still retain the title of the most powerful single combustion chamber liquid-propellant rocket engine ever developed! What an amazing piece of rocketry and history that you can now wear as a pin!
Raptor Engine (Starship and Super Heavy) Hard Enamel Pin
The Raptor engine! Currently expected to have around 500,000lbf at sea level and specific impulse of 350 s, it is the first operational, full-flow, liquid oxygen, liquid methane engine! These engines will power super heavy and starship and take our species to the Moon, Mars and beyond!
SLS - NASA Space Launch System Block 1
NASA's SLS rocket! Destined to launch humans back to the moon in the coming years as part of the Artemis program, it is the culmination of many years of work. Currently scheduled to make its maiden flight in late 2021/early 2022, it will blast off of pad 39B with 39,440 kN of force. It has 4 upgraded RS-25's (the same engines that were used on the shuttles) and 2 solid boosters on either side of the huge core stage. The Orion crew module sitting on top, ready to take them to the Moon! Get your pin today before the first flight!
