    Description

    Apollo 17 Lunar Module Flown Beta Cloth Transfer Bag used to transfer items back and forth between the Command Module America and the Lunar Module Challenger. Approximately 8.5" x 10.5" with a 2" gusset and a top flap with snap closure. The official NASA part and serial numbers are on an identification tag sewn to the front: "SEB 32100025-301/ S/N 1042". "LM" has been written and circled on the front designating that it flew on the lunar module.

    Beta cloth is a type of fireproof silica fiber cloth, similar to fiberglass, which has a melting point of 650° C. Dow-Corning developed it after the tragic Apollo 1 fire in which the astronauts' nylon suits melted and fused together. Complete with written authentication by mission Commander Gene Cernan.
