This is an outstanding item - the original NASA Space Shuttle "Tile" - from a very special part of a Space Shuttle Orbiter - the number tells it is from the wings inside.

It is a flown Space Shuttle part made of inconel-covered cerachrome insulation.
In the Orbiter Processing Facility, the worker looks over a Reinforced Carbon Carbon (RCC) panel that will be attached to the leading edge of the wing of the orbiter Atlantis. The gray carbon composite RCC panels have sufficient strength to withstand the aerodynamic forces experienced during launch and reentry, which can reach as high as 800 pounds per square foot. The operating range of RCC is from minus 250º F to about 3,000º F, the temperature produced by friction with the atmosphere during reentry.

The part removed from the orbiter because of damage or material stress. There are clear signs of extreme heating at the borders of the insulation. And you see he typical red coloring of parts which have to be removed from the Shuttle Orbiters.

A large flown space item. Six photographs are added to illustrate the item and other parts of the Space Shuttle's thermal protection system. The size of the photographs is 11 x 8 inches.

Please see the photographs. It is the first time I saw such an item. It is outstanding in size and quality.
