NASA BACKGROUND INFORMATION NARRATIVE:
LI-900 SHUTTLE TILE INSULATION
LI-900 has a bulk density of 9 pounds per cubic foot. It was for this reason that it was called the LI-900. It is made from 99.9% pure silica glass fibers, and 94% by volume of air. An LI-900 tile can be heated to 2200 oF (about 1478 K) and then immediately plunged into cold water and suffer no damage.
It is required that both black and white tiles are used on the Space Shuttle in order to control the temperature of the vehicle while in orbit.
White tiles (known as LRSI) are used mainly on the upper surface have higher thermal reflectivity. These are therefore pointed towards the sun in order to minimize solar gain.
Black tiles (known as HRSI) areoptimized for maximum emissivity, which means they lose heat faster than white tiles. This property is required in order to maximize heat rejection during re-entry.
There are typically 20,000 HRSILI-900 tiles on a Space Shuttle, and 725 LRSI LI-900 tiles.
The piece of shuttle tile you will get will measure approximately 2 7/8" x 1/2" x 1/8" and will show through a display window located on the front of the presentation card
