Space Shuttle astronaut headrest pillow cover, measuring approximately 21″ x 11.5″, bearing a sewn-on parts label: "Headrest Pillow, V669-002079-001, 2D628 H075117C." The edge has three snaps for securing the foam pad inside (which has since been discarded by NASA), and the rear has a Velcro-tabbed strap that would allow it to be wrapped and secured in place; astronauts could also use the strap to shield the eyes from the Shuttle's cabin lighting. Astronauts could use these pillows in a sleep station, or with sleep restraints, and a sleeping bag. In fine condition. The consignor notes that this Class I flight item was purchased as NASA surplus.
