Used for launch Aft Separation Bolt and Screw (not flown), used during the launch of shuttle Atlantis mission STS-104. The two pieces, weighing a combined 56.6 pounds, each measuring approximately 6″ in height, with a combined height of roughly 12″ after use. Upper portion bears a label indetifying it as “AFT Separation Bolt.” This particular bolt was taken from the Tail Service Mount (TSM) on MLP 2. Two sets of AFT separation bolts are removed each launch from the left and right TSM on the MLP. At launch, only six bolts (no screws) are returned to Kennedy Space Center from SRB Retrieval. No screws survive the ascent into space. The only sets that survive the launch are those used on the TSM on the pad. In fine condition, with expected sheared center. Accompanied by a photocopy of a page from the ACMS Log Book identifying the bolt as being used on STS-104. RRAuction COA.
