DescriptionSkylab 1 (SL-1) Flown Piece of Space Station as Recovered in Australia. A flat piece of metal, approximately 2" x 0.75" in size, encapsulated in a domed plastic cylinder, 2.5" diameter x 4.25", along with three illustrated explanatory cards. Skylab was the first space station the United States launched into orbit, and the second space station to be visited by a human crew. It was launched in May 1973 and remained in use until July 1979, when it fell to earth due to low fuel and lack of needed repairs. The largest portion of Skylab debris fell in Rawlinna, a remote locality and railway siding on the Trans-Australian Railway in Western Australia and was found by Bill Norton, Laurie Hotstone, and Peter Ralph. This piece came from their found debris that NASA confirmed to be part of an Oxygen Supply Tank. Scratches and scrapes on the surface, generally very good.
