Description

STS-89 Hi-Temp Insulator

Available to US bidders only. Flown high temperature Shuttle Orbiter insulator used in the wings in the internal elevon wing structure assemblies of the Space Shuttle Endeavor, measuring approximately 16 x 11 x 4, part no. “V070-199899-002,” serial no. “25167-005.” In very good condition. Accompanied by the original condemned material tag and a certificate of authenticity signed by Ken Havekotte. This particular insulator had likely been part of the shuttle since it had been put into service in 1992 until its removal in August/September 1998 after twelve Endeavour spaceflights. On the last mission, STS-89, the crew transported more than 8,000 pounds of scientific equipment, logistical hardware, and water to the Mir space station. From the collection of aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte.
