ALDRIN'S FLOWN APOLLO 11 COMMAND MODULE SKIN SEGMENT.
An approximately ¼ by ¼ inch foil segment mounted on a 3 by 8 inch Typed Note Signed by BUZZ ALDRIN. The material was used as a thermal layer on the very outer surface of Command Module Columbia and was exposed to the vacuum of space during the entire flight and almost 60 hours in lunar orbit.
BUZZ ALDRIN'S Typed Note Signed reads: "The segment placed here in Mylar insulation removed from Command Module Columbia after our return from the moon and the first lunar landing mission of Apollo XI July 16 to 24, 1969. This flown segment is from my personal collection. BUZZ ALDRIN, Col USAF, (Ret.), Gemini XII Pilot, Apollo 11 Lunar Module Pilot."
