Lot Details
FLOWN APOLLO 11 MYLAR.
Segment of mylar, approximately 1 by ½ inch, mounted on a Typed Letter Signed by Buzz Aldrin.

BUZZ ALDRIN'S letter reads in part: "This segment of Mylar insulation was removed from the Apollo 11 Command Module Columbia after splashdown by NASA recovery personnel back in July 1969. It was presented to me as a memento from the flight."
Aldrin then describes the Apollo 11 launch, a three day trip to the moon, the lunar landing, and their return. He ends the letter with: "This Mylar experienced the searing heat of re-entry into the earth's atmosphere on July 24, 1969. Most of the Mylar coating burned off during this period, but some parts remained, as displayed on this letter."
