Apollo 11 Flown Kapton Foil

Here are some pieces of flown kapton foil from the Apollo 11 command module Columbia, that carried Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin to the moon & back. This piece was obtained by a sailor who was a Quartermaster on the USS Hornet when the Apollo 11 spacecraft was recovered on July 24, 1969. This sailor wrote me a very funny letter describing the horsetrading that went on between he and the NAA recovery crew.
Notarized letter on file.
