What is kapton foil?

Kapton foil, with one side silver and the other gold, protected the Command Module from the extreme radiation of deep space. It is a common misconception that the gold side of the foil was directly exposed to deep space, it was in fact the silver side which was directly exposed to deep space with the gold side facing inward toward the spacecraft.

What is 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. This role was performed by North American Aviation. The heat shield was designed to withstand temperatures in excess of 3200°C. Each Command Module was protected by approximately 370,000 manually-filled honeycomb cells.

What is thermal foil?

Thermal foil was attached to the Aft, Forward and Main sections of the Command Module and protected the crew compartment and temperature-sensitive sections of the spacecraft from the extreme temperatures of deep space. The thermal foil contained within this booster pack came from the Aft section of the Apollo 8 Command Module.
