Northrop Grumman NG-10, SpaceX CRS-19 & ISS Flown Mylar Foil #1
Genuine protective mylar foil was flown aboard the MISSE-10 payload into space where it orbited Earth for 13 months outside of the International Space Station.
This segment of protective mylar foil was flown into space to the International Space Station contained within the MISSE-10 payload. The space flown material was launched aboard a Grumman Antares 230 rocket, inside of the Cygnus NG-10 spacecraft known as the S.S. John Young. The payload orbited outside of the International Space Station for over 13 months before returning to Earth aboard the SpaceX CRS-19 Dragon capsule.
The payload launched into Earth orbit aboard Grumman flight Cygnus NG-10 on 15th November 2018 at 09:01:31 UTC, where they orbited for several days before docking with the International Space Station on 19th November 2018 at 12:31 UTC. The payload was then moved into position outside of the Space Station using the robotic arm, where it remained for over 13 months.
While in space, the mylar foil was subjected to the temperatures of outer space, 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.
After the mission was complete, the payload was loaded onto the CRS-19 Dragon capsule and was returned to Earth on 7th January 2020 and landed at 15:41 UTC.
The mission lasted a total of The mission lasted 13 months, 22 days, 6 hours, and 40 minutes from the moment of liftoff until splashdown completing a total of 6479 orbits around Earth and travelling 170,926,000 miles during its flight aboard the ISS.

This space flown material came from our private collection. We arranged for a payload of pins and patches to be sent up to the International Space Station aboard the Grumman Cygnus NG-10 spacecraft on 15th November 2018. The payload was attached to the exterior of the ISS and orbited for over 13 months and 170,926,000 miles before returning to Earth via a SpaceX Dragon capsule on 7th January 2020. The mylar foil was used within our payload as a separating agent so that the contents would not become permanently stuck together.
