Description


Space Shuttle Personal Preference Kit (PPK) made of white Nomex, measuring 6″ x 9″, with a parts tag on the front: "P/N SDD12100370-301, S/N 5050." The PPK bag is closed at the top with a brown drawstring. These PPKs were Class I flight hardware used to carry astronauts' personal effects during the Shuttle Program missions. Each astronaut was permitted to carry 20 items that could fit into one PPK. The PPKs were handled by ground support personnel using white gloves, which may account for their very clean condition. The PPKs were stored on the Shuttle in a compartment inaccessible to the crew during flight. The design of this PPK is based off a similar design/shape/size as those used on the Apollo Program. The bottom of the bag has a gusset that opens to about 1.75″ wide. A NASA contractor printed the ID labels with the wrong dash number on an entire batch: this is one from that batch, which has a corrected dash number in ink (“-301") from what was printed (“-701").
