    NASA Kennedy Space Center: Two Pound Package of Technical Talcum Powder with 1972-Dated Parts Tag. A double-sealed plastic bag containing good old-fashioned pure white talcum powder meeting Military Spec MIL-T-50036. The KSC Form 4-8 (7/65) Parts Tag shows inspector stamps with inspection and stock dates in December 1972. This was likely used in dusting and lubrication but our research did locate a U.S. Army Armament Command document titled "Analysis and Characteristics of High-Purity Talc For Use in Propellants: Determination of Talc in Propellants". Interesting reading, a full copy included with the lot. Outside bag is tearing, powder is very fine (get it?).
