Solar array carrier isolator intended for application in the Space Shuttle Payload Bay as part of the cradle assembly that retained the Hubble Space Telescope's solar array from launch to orbital release; or for those solar arrays deinstalled from the ISS, for return from orbit through landing. The component measures approximately 29″ long and 5.5″ in diameter, and is marked on the side: "Solar Array Carrier, Honeywell P/N 61962 8258825-902 Rev. B, Fairchild Space P/N 963-PF 1000, Serno 92060102, D.O.M. 9223." Many of the screws have been sealed on with dots of adhesive, preparing the carrier for flight. Complete with its foil packaging. Consignor states that this was deaccessioned by NASA Goddard along with other flown hardware after Hubble Service Mission SM3B. Attesting to its significance is the label designating that it was an "artifact."
