This piece of spaceflight history is part of our exclusive Space Collector Series. This pack contains a genuine fragment (approx. 10mm) of the Space Shuttle thermal insulation blanket that flew and was used aboard the STS-8 Space Shuttle Challenger in August-September 1983.

Thermal blankets, part of the Space Shuttle Thermal Protection System (TPS), protected the Space Shuttle orbiters from the extreme temperatures encountered during spaceflight. The thermal blankets were made from a woven ceramic fabric with insulative batting in between the fabric layers.

Also included in this booster pack are collectible authenticity & information cards, as well as acrylic display discs to hold your pieces of historic space flown memorabilia.
