Hideo, A.

I am a Japanese young scientist staying in the U.S. In the last weekend, I went to the California Science Center to see a space shuttle, Endeavour. It was a very exciting event for me, even though I had not expected too much of it (my field is quite different from space engineering). It is a kind of perfect fruit of science.

Thanks to this wonderful experience, I would like a lucite of Apollo 11 flown mylar like yours. Could you give me an advice on how to obtain it? And I would like to know any relevant history, background story, or detailed information of the lucites. Could you help me?

It is exciting to see a shuttle up close, isn't it?

The Lucite's like mine were made to give to VIPs related to a mission. However recently, some people have made modern versions. I prefer the vintage ones.

You can sometimes find them on eBay.

Dear David,

Thank you very much for your quick reply.

Yes. It was very exciting. We can see the shuttle in our presence and I strongly felt that the shuttle was made only for research purposes. I could not find any decoration and odd shape.

As far as I know, there are three types of Apollo 11's lucites:



and yours. Is the first one also vintage?
I also prefer vintage ones but they seem to be harder to find.

Have a nice day!
