This official SpaceX lucite contains a genuine segment of SpaceX CRS-7 flown solar array from the failed mission in June 2015. These lucites were presented to SpaceX employees. The accompanying note reads; "2017 has proved to be a pivotal year for SpaceX. As we celebrate our first reflight and more to come, it's important to remember the lessons learned from past hardships. While the CRS-7 and Amos-6 mishaps are behind us, we continue to feel their impact. As we all know, a million things can go right but it only takes one misstep to result in a mission failure. This portion of Dragon's solar array structure from the failed CRS-7 mission serves as a reminder that launching safely and reliably is everyone's duty. Always triple check your work, check the work of others, and together we will continue to make history."
