Description


Flown limited edition Hubble Space Telescope polymide film, #55/75, retrieved during a 1999 shuttle mission. Film measures .75 x 1 and is encased in a 4.5 x 3.5 piece of Lucite against a color informational photo display, with the reverse bearing an image of the Hubble with an arrow pointing to where the material was removed. Information reads, “This aluminized polymide film is from an original multi-layer insulation (MLI) blanket covering the exterior of the Hubble Space Telescope. It was removed on December 24, 1999, from the Support System Module’s Bay 10 door during Servicing Mission 3A by STS-103 astronauts Steven Smith and John Grunsfeld. This material flew on-orbit more than 1.5 billion miles from the April 24, 1990, launch of STS-31 (Hubble deployment) to the STS-103 landing on December 27, 1999.” In fine condition. RR Auction COA.
