The First Instagram From Space Is Of An Astronaut In A Firefly T-Shirt

Last week, NASA astronaut Steve Swanson sent the first Instagram from space. It was a selfie, naturally, taken before the ISS cupola. But what caught our eye wasn't Swanson's handsome mug or the view of Earth. It was Swanson's shirt, which features a familiar spacecraft and the words: "Shipping & Logistics: Everything's Shiny."

This isn't Swanson's first turn as a Browncoat in low Earth orbit. During his first ISS mission in 2007, he brought with him Firefly and Serenity DVDs and left them aboard, a contribution to the space station's library.

The shirt's pattern was created by designer Bora Markovic. You can pick one up for yourself here.
