DESCENT STAGE THERMAL BLANKET SECTION. Consisting of aluminized polymide (Kapton-H film), aluminized polyester (mylar), fiberfax, inconel mesh, nickel foil, and mylar tape. 12 by 15 inches, one side with 12 inch velcro strip. Provenance: Property of an institution. The thermal blanket played a key role in protecting the descent stage. Part of the thermal shield, it was used in conjunction with a titanium heat shield to protect the bottom of the descent stage from engine heat, as well as part of the protection for the engine compartment. The titanium shields coupled with the thermal blankets were mounted on supports which kept them at least a half inch away from the main structure.
