This wonderful piece of spaceflight history is one in our our exclusive "Space Collector's Series". This booster pack contains a micro fragment (approx. 2mm) of genuine Apollo 8 Command Module flown thermal foil.
Thermal foil was attached to the Aft, Forward and Main sections of the Command Module and protected the crew compartment and temperature sensitive sections of the spacecraft from the extreme temperatures of deep space. The thermal foil contained within this booster pack came from the Aft section of the Apollo 8 Command Module.
Also included in this booster pack is a collectible authenticity & information card, as well as an acrylic display disc to hold your historic piece of space flown memorabilia.
Booster Pack Includes:
Apollo 8 Command Module Flown Aft Thermal Foil
Collectible Authenticity & Information Card
4cm Circular Acrylic Display Case
How do we know the material is genuine?
When the Command Modules were returned to North American Aviation (which later became Rockwell) in Downey, California, they were decommissioned/decontaminated. As part of this process all of the thermal foil was stripped from the spacecraft and most of it ended up being discarded - this is why when you see a Command Module in a museum it is bare. Some of the NAA/Rockwell employees who worked on the decom and rescue teams however had the frame of mind to keep some of this material as a souvenir. It wasn't until much later that they realised this material had monetary value and so over time pieces have come up for sale either directly from ex-employees and even astronauts themselves, as well as specialist space auctions.
Space Collector's Series
Our exclusive Space Collector's Series brings you genuine material which has been flown in space either aboard or as part of a NASA spacecraft, such as the Apollo Command Module, Space Shuttle and more.
Each piece of flown material is guaranteed as authentic and is accompanied by a high-quality, collectible authenticity & information card, as well as an acrylic display disc bearing the mission insignia and statement of authenticity on the reverse. The collectible card is made from 350 gsm glossy art paper and is coated in high-quality cellophane for protection. Your booster pack will also arrive in a biodegradable, compostable sealed bag (because in this day and age we can have nice things and keep our planet clean and safe at the same time).
Through this wonderful collectors series you will be able to collect, study and enjoy owning genuine spaceflight history. So why not start your journey in owning genuine space flown material from some of NASA's most iconic spacecraft today?
