DESCRIPTION

This incredible piece of spaceflight history is part of our exclusive Space Series. This pack contains a genuine micro fragment of Apollo 7 Command Module flown heatshield.

Heatshield was used to protect the Command Module from the extreme heat of reentry and was composed of a fiberglass honeycomb, integrated with a phenolic resin and bonded with an epoxy-based adhesive to a cleaned, stainless steel shell. The heatshield was designed to withstand temperatures in excess of 3200°C. Each Command Module was protected by approximately 370,000 manually-filled honeycomb cells. North American Aviation performed this task.

Also included in this pack is a collectible authenticity information card, as well as an acrylic display disc to hold your historic piece of space flown memorabilia.

Includes:

  • Apollo 7 Command Module Flown Heatshield
  • Collectible Authenticity Information Card
  • 4cm Circular Acrylic Display Case
