Materials used on Apollo 14, 16 and Discovery missions are being given away, with autographs

The Astronaut Scholarship Foundation has unveiled its 2010 Space Artifacts - collectible flown space artefacts elegantly encased in Lucite, with the mission insignia.

The foundation's 2010 artefacts willinclude:

A swatch of Beta cloth, the same kind of glass-woven fiber fabric used to cover the astronaut's spacesuits, flown to the Moon on Apollo 14's command module Kittyhawk. A pyro system schematic from a data book that was aboard the Apollo 16 lunar module Orion. A space shuttle thermal protection system tile segment flown on the first four flights of Discovery, removed after the STS-51D flight.

Display-friendlyspace artefactsThe reverse side of each Lucite display box features a description of the artefact, its individual number and a digital astronaut signature.

Each item comes from the astronaut's personal collection, according to the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation's personal website, and is certified and signed by each.
