DescriptionApollo 11 Flown Kapton Foil in Lucite. A 1" square piece of Mylar sealed in a 2.5" diameter x 1" tall Lucite cylinder with "APOLLO XI MYLAR/ COMMAND MODULE/ THERMAL COATING" engraved on the bottom. Kapton foil is a thin Mylar material used to line the outer walls of the command module and plays a critical role in reflecting the sun's intense heat away from the spacecraft as it re-enters Earth's atmosphere. Due to its fragile nature, most of the foil usually burns off the ship on reentry, but small pieces often survive. A great memento from the greatest mission in NASA's history. Pristine condition.

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
