This segment of protective mylar foil was flown within the MISSE payload to the International Space Station aboard the CRS-14 Falcon 9 Rocket. The payload orbited outside of the Space Station for over 14 months before returning to Earth aboard the SpaceX CRS-17 Dragon Capsule.
The payload launched aboard SpaceX CRS-14 on 2 April 2018 at 20:30:38 UTC, where it orbited for several days before docking with the International Space Station on 4 April 2018 at 13:00 UTC. The payload returned to Earth aboard the SpaceX CRS-17 Dragon on 4th June 2019 and landed at 21:48:38 UTC. The mission lasted 14 months, 1 day, 1 hour, 18 minutes, 0 seconds from the moment of liftoff until splashdown. The payload travelled over 175 million miles during its flight aboard the ISS (4.8 miles per second x 14 months).
While in space the mylar foil was subjected to temperatures of -100 °C (-148 °F) up to 120 °C (248 °F), electromagnetic radiation (UV-A, UV-B, UV-C, Visible Light, IR), micro-gravity (weightlessness) and the vacuum of space. The foil was used as a separating agent within the payload so that the contents did not stick together permanently.
