SKYLAB PNCs AND PRESENTATIONS
Pictured here is a fragment of the Skylab space station (with official NASA COA) that returned to Earth on 11-July-1979 and retrieved from Western Australia.
This is an actual piece of one of the six oxygen supply tanks carried on board Skylab. Measuring approximately 1" long and 0.5" wide, it has been professionally mounted and protected on a colour card illustrating one of the last pictures of Skylab ever taken. It has travelled some 890 million miles as the space station orbited the Earth for over 6 years.
