The Space Collective Space Museum

At The Space Collective we pride ourselves on the space museum we have built over time! Our fearless leader, Richard Garner, is consistently searching for the rarest, usually one-of-a-kind space memorabilia artifacts to add to our collection. When the rarest pieces of memorabilia are not on display at our office, they're in museums around the world for everyone to enjoy. We do this to both preserve and make available the rarest pieces of memorabilia and it is something we will continue to do well into the future.

Do you work for a Museum?

We are frequently approached by museums and space centres from all around the world who are looking for rare and one-of-a-kind space artifacts to display in their exhibits. This is a service we offer to accredited museums so if your museum is planning a space exhibition we may be able to assist. Feel free to contact us and tell us about your plans or to check the availability of our artifacts here.

Apollo 10 Boost Cover Release Label

Apollo 10 Boost Cover Release Label from the Apollo 10 Command Module Astronaut Access Hatch Door

Summary: Through extensive research and photo matching we are able to say with absolute certainty that this genuine boost cover release label was originally attached to the primary astronaut access hatch of the Apollo 10 "Charlie Brown" Command Module. The purpose of this label was to indicate to the ground crew where the tool opening on the hatch door was in order to remove the boost cover in the event of an emergency.

The boost cover was part of the launch escape system (LES). If activated, the LES would take the Command Module containing the astronauts away from the launch vehicle in case of an emergency on the pad or shortly after launch. The subsystem was designed to carry the Command Module to a sufficient height and off to the side, away from the launch vehicle, so that the Earth landing subsystem can operate. The subsystem visible in launchpad photographs of the Saturn V is the large, white rocket-like spike con­nected to the Command Module by a lattice-work tower and was 33 feet long and weighed approximately 8,000 pounds.
