Thermal Shuttle Tile... was created by Tonybwf

Hi all,

i recently purchased a piece of thermal tile from the "columbia" i was very disappointed when i received it because its tiny!! so just advising if anyone is into space memorbilia email before you buy to get the dimensions...on the plus side it wasnt expensive! A friend of mine has a piece of the mercury capsule heat-shield its pretty cool to have a piece of space history...hel never part with it :twisted:
Regards
Tony

Failure was an option for Columbia's tiles Tony.

You seem to like failures.

Replied by pablod72 on topic Comlumbia's piece:Careful

Be very careful as it's a federal crime in the US to posses ANY a piece of Columbia since the accident.If you want to buy a whole tile you can do it from Skycraft in Orlando ,Florida. They are a legally established business and can tell you from where it come from.Last time I was there they have it at around U$S 2500 a piece or something like that.

Why?, are you thinking it'll keep you warm during our current cold spell, you might need more then a square centimetre of it in that case. :lol:
