Description


A 2.75 x 2.5 swatch of beige Vectran material, taken from a roll used to make the landing bags for the Mars rover Sojourner. Accompanied by a 2005 letter of provenance from Leslie Singer stating “the material…is from the original roll of Vectran material used to make the landing bags for the Mars Rover Sojourner used on the Mars Pathfinder mission July 1997. I personally received this sample of material while visiting the manufacturer.” Vectran fibers are noted for ability to withstand high temperatures and stability in hostile environments, making them ideal for landing on other planets.
