    Description

    Apollo 13: Rare Large Section of Apollo 13 Flown Kapton Foil. A large section, measuring approximately 6.75" x 3.5" overall, of the delicate Kapton foil from the Apollo 13 Command Module Odyssey. This valuable heat deflecting material was crucial in the safe return for the crew as they re-entered the Earth's atmosphere following the near-disastrous mission. Normally sold in tiny fragments, pieces this size are very scarce. Included with this lot is an LOA from Goldberg Auctioneers signed by Sandy Clarkson. Very fine condition.
