Mercury MA-6 "Friendship 7" flown heatshield 8x10 presentation

We are proud to present the last missing flown artifact to complete a series of flown artifacts from all manned US spaceflight : Mercury Atlas 6 - Friendship 7 - first orbital US spaceflight of John Glenn.

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 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.

This presentation bears a fragment of the flown Mercury Friendship 7 heatshield and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity.

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.

Your presentation package includes:
  • 8x10 color glossy presentation certificate - ready to mat and frame
  • Flown fragment of MA-6 Friendship 7 heatshield
  • Certificate of authenticity
