Attached to this archival quality presentation is a piece of space flown Kapton Foil that went to the Moon and back on Apollo 15. The spacecraft which carried Dave Scott, Al Worden and Jim Irwin to the Moon was known as the ''Command Module''. To protect the fragile craft from the extreme environment of deep space, a thin layer of material known as Kapton Foil, silver-coloured on the front with a gold backing, was attached to the outside skin of the Command Module. Because the foil was attached to the outside skin of the spacecraft, its silver-coloured side was directly exposed to deep space. The Kapton Foil was sourced from former Navy UDT-11 Recovery Team member; Alan Beuhler.
The image shows Astronaut David R. Scott, commander, giving a military salute while standing beside the deployed United States flag during the Apollo 15 lunar surface extravehicular activity (EVA) at the Hadley-Apennine landing site. The flag was deployed toward the end of EVA-2. The Lunar Module (LM), "Falcon," is partially visible on the right. Hadley Delta in the background rises approximately 4,000 meters (about 13,124 feet) above the plain. The base of the mountain is approximately 5 kilometres (about three statute miles) away. This photograph was taken by astronaut James B. Irwin, lunar module pilot. While astronauts Scott and Irwin descended in the LM to explore the moon, astronaut Alfred M. Worden, command module pilot, remained in lunar orbit in the Command and Service Modules (CSM).
