Apollo 11 carried the first humans to the surface of the moon - Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin - july 16th-24th 1969

Acrylic block containing a flown piece of heatshield and a piece of flown Kapton foil both from the Apollo 11 command module "Columbia" recovered after the flight. 

Made in Germany - the best acrylics on the market
Made out of the most advanced acrylic available on the market today - Plexid 55 - these are ultraclear with no discoloration over time. Unlike other privately made acrylics or lucites these are real blocks, not cheaply glued or screwed together. Each block is about 5''x3''x1'' in size - perfect for any office table or even flat down in a cabinet.

The flown heatshield is originally taken from a larger fragment that was encased in lucite and given to VIPS and workers and the flown Kapton foil is from the collection of Bill Whipkey/NASA.

Only 30 such acrylics were made and each comes with a COA and documentation about the background of the artifacts.
