Own a Piece of Space History

The encased piece of Kapton foil was used in the actual mission-flown Apollo 11 Command Module Columbia. Kapton foil is an aluminized polyimide film that is semi-transparent, the Columbia was coated with many layers of this foil to reflect radiation. Measuring approx. 1 mm x 1 mm the tiny specimen is enclosed in an acrylic cube with a magnifying lid for easy viewing. Surrounding the cube are images from the Apollo 11 mission inside of a padded, glass-topped riker box display case measuring 5 ½” x 6 ½”. Each piece of foil will come with a certificate of authenticity and an information card. For ages 14+.

Piloted by astronaut Michael Collins, Command Module Columbia orbited the Moon while fellow astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin explored the surface. The craft carried all three astronauts safely back to Earth, splashing down in the Pacific Ocean on July 24, 1969.

Please Note: The magnified lid is secured to the acrylic cube with special tape, but the specimen inside is directly accessible. If you choose to remove the lid to examine the specimen, please use extreme caution.
