Description

    Apollo 11 Flown Pieces (Two) of Kapton Foil, Each on a Certificate. Two items, as follows:
    (1) A 0.375" x 0.25" piece of "Gold Foil 'Skin' from Apollo 11 Spacecraft 'Columbia'" attached to a 3.5" x 2.5" card explaining the provenance with a facsimile signature of Dick Williamson.
    (2) An odd-shaped, 1" x 0.375" overall, "Reflective Gold Kapton Film From Apollo 11 Command Module Columbia" attached and laminated to a 3.5" x 2.5" sheet explaining the provenance with a facsimile signature of Robert E Miner of North American Rockwell.
    Kapton foil was used to protect the spacecraft from the extreme environment of deep space; this delicate foil played a critical role by reflecting the sun's intense heat off the ship, helping to maintain comfortable temperatures within. Both in excellent condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.
