IMLI could provides the cryogenic insulation and vacuum shell used to insulation and maintain cryogenics on space instruments, satellites, CEV/CLV spacecraft cabins and lunar surface habitats. It also helps provide substantially longer term cryogenic storage, helping enable longer term manned space flights. Low mass, low thermal conductance cryotank structural systems are of interest to NASA.
IMLI may has excellent properties required for spacecraft use; low thermal conductance, vacuum compatibility of materials, inherent control of layer dimensions and density, self-supporting layers with a post-and-beam substructure, ease of assembly for small and large areas, potential for both tight seams and material flexibility.

A real "ONE OF KIND" Space Shuttle Collection!!!!
Vance DeVoe Brand (born May 9, 1931) is a former test pilot and NASA astronaut. He served as command module pilot during the first U.S.-Soviet joint space flight in 1975, and as commander of three space shuttle missions.
His flight experience includes 9,669 flying hours, which includes 8,089 hours in jets, 391 hours in helicopters, 746 hours in spacecraft, and checkout in more than 30 types of military aircraft. Vance Brand Airport in Longmont, Colorado is named in his honor.
Brand flew on four space missions; Apollo-Soyuz, STS-5, STS-41-B, and STS-35. He logged 746 hours in space and commanded three missions. Brand was the last member of his astronaut class to remain active with NASA, and was the only Apollo-era astronaut to fly the Space Shuttle in the post-Challenger era.
Brand was commander of Space Shuttle Columbia for STS-5, the first fully operational flight of the Shuttle Transportation System, which launched on November 11, 1982 and demonstrated the Shuttle as operational by the successful first deployment of two commercial communications satellites from the Orbiter's payload bay. STS-5 was the last flight to carry the Development Flight Instrumentation package to support extensive flight testing. The STS-5 crew concluded the 5-day orbital flight of Columbia with the landing approach through a cloud deck to Runway 22 at Edwards Air Force Base, California on November 16, 1982. Mission duration was 122 hours.
Brand commanded Challenger with a crew of five on the tenth flight of the Space Shuttle, STS-41-B. The launch was on February 3, 1984. The flight accomplished the proper shuttle deployment of two Hughes 376 communications satellites which failed to reach desired geosynchronous orbits due to upper stage rocket failures. This mission marked the first flight checkout of the Manned Maneuvering Unit and the Manipulator Foot Restraint with McCandless and Stewart performing two untethered extravehicular activities. Shuttle rendezvous sensors and computer programs were flight tested for the first time. The 8-day flight of Challenger ended with the first landing to the runway at the Kennedy Space Center on February 11, 1984, ending a 191-hour mission.
Brand again commanded Columbia on the 38th flight of the shuttle, this time with a crew of seven, on STS-35. The spectacular night launch on December 2, 1990 started a nine-day mission devoted to round-the-clock observations of stars and other celestial objects. The 13-ton payload consisted of the 3 ASTRO-1 Ultraviolet (UV) Telescopes and the Broad Band X-ray Telescope. More than 200 Orbiter maneuvers were required to point the telescopes. This Shuttle flight, the first dedicated to astronomy, provided a rich return of science data with emphasis on observation of very active celestial objects. A night landing was made on December 10, to Runway 22 at Edwards Air Force Base. Mission duration was 215 hours.
A GREAT INVESTMENT PIECE....and yes, this item might be more expensive than some other items you find on ebay, but you usually get what you pay for. If you buy a cheap autograph that isn't authentic or space memorabilia that is a copy, it will still have no value in the future. So, even if you don't buy from us, please make sure you buy from a reputable dealer, preferably a UACC or IADA member, who must guarantee in writing that your purchase is genuine. I hope this helps you make a good investment.
