A NASA INVENTION AND SPACE EXPLORATION ARTIFACTAfter the tragic Apollo 1 launch pad fire that killed 3 astronauts, NASA decided to work on removing all flammable materials from the spacecraft cabin.
A new material was designed for use as the outer layer of space suits made of teflon-coated fiberglass. This cloth was called Beta cloth and is still widely used for space suits and missions to this day. By Apollo 7 even the embroidered patches, insignias, and name tags were replaced with screen printed Beta cloth patches.
These patches were misprints and/or test runs to align the screen printing layers. If you look closely, you can see some of the colors are misaligned. They were obtained from the company that manufactured the special inks used in this process in 1969. These patches would have been stitched onto the astronaut's suits and coveralls.

surprisingly good quality and fast shipping
Bought it for my Dad, and he lives it. Keeps it in his toolbox now. Very handy.
Incredibly cool piece of computing history! As always STEMcell Science Shop is the best place to get all of my nerdy goods.
Still on learning curve, but having much fun.
Sent this to my Husband as a gift and he really enjoyed the uniqueness of all the items included in the box. I can't wait until he receives his next box!
I gave a good friend of mine quite a few of the science materials available, and she absolutely loved them! Each one was nicely shipped and labeled. My friend was over the moon about everything being authentic. Great gifts!
Voyager Golden Record Cover Pin
It’s a gift for Christmas, but I of course had to try it out. It was great fun, a bit of a challenge to get it back to its original configuration to get it back in the box without looking up instructions, but it was great fun!!!
Absolutely cool little things that I enjoy. I gave away a few to family who enjoy them more, and now I'm a hero.
im not typically a review guy, but this is easily the coolest thing I've ordered on the internet.
I never thought I'd own an actual dinosaur tooth. I'm blown away every month
Beautiful fossil. Would recommend.
