Saturn V Apollo 7 to 17 Flown Material & Moon Rock Lucite
This incredible Saturn V Rocket lucite contains genuine materials flown aboard all Apollo missions, from Apollo 7 through to Apollo 17, as well as a genuine moon rock!
This incredible, executive-grade lucite is shaped like the famous Apollo Saturn V Rocket that launched astronauts to the moon during the Apollo Program and has embedded within it genuine segments of mission flown kapton foil, thermal foil, beta fabric, and heatshield from each of the Apollo Command Modules. The flown materials appear next to their respective mission logos and labels. Also embedded within is a genuine moon rock!
Attached to the base are the Saturn V's five powerful Rocketdyne F-1 engines arrayed in a quincunx and painted in silver, with the rocket's first stage painted in the historic black and white for which the Saturn V was known. The Command/Service Module at the top of the rocket is also painted in silver, with the launch escape tower (LES) painted in white. The CSM and LES tower is removable and attaches to the 3rd stage magnetically.
The lucite measures approximately 16.15 inches x 3.15 inches x 3.15 inches including the base.
