Mercury MA-6  flown heatshield fragment

It took us more than 20 years to locate a suitable flown artifact from Glenn's flight since almost nothing (except flown dollar bills) is on the market. According to our research we are the only supplier in the world now that can offer you a flown artifact from the first US orbita spaceflight Mercury MA-6.

Mercury Atlas - Friendship 7 was the first manned Mercury mission that reached orbit piloted by John Glenn. Launched February 20th 1962 John Glenn became the first American in orbit and making history.

The source of this heatshield fragment was a heatshield plug encased into lucite as a presentation piece given to Gemini Program Office special assistant and longtime NASA employee, Paul M. Sturtevant.

Triangle swatch of heatshield material mounted on a 7x9'' rigid foam board certified on the backside.  

This edition is limited to 99 presentations only.

Please note : Due to the nature of the source artifact each presentation differs slightly in color and shape.
