Except that it isn't "clever".
Someone already posted a version of this shirt that makes the joke in a way that is obvious at a glance (the space shuttle is midflight) That is what a good novelty shirt will do, deliver its message with one look.
Even if I have to stare at this shirt to understand its nuance (cause nothing is more awkward than standing still while someone figures out your shirt) there are multiple things here that don't make sense. They've been mentioned already, I won't repeat them. If the idea is I have to look at the details to understand its brilliance.... well, the details is where this concept falls apart.
