FLOWN APOLLO 11 COMMAND MODULE SKIN FRAGMENT
An approximately ½ by ¼ inch FLOWN foil segment mounted on a 2 ½ by 8 inch Typed Note Signed by Buzz Aldrin. The segment was part of the entire outer surface of Command Module Columbia and served as a thermal protection layer. It traveled some 500,000 miles during the Apollo 11 flight and was exposed to the vacuum of space for over 195 hours, including almost 60 hours while in lunar orbit.
