This one of a kind Limited Edition is an exclusive bundle that includes a real fragment of mission-flown Kapton Foil that protected the Columbia Command Module during its re-entry to Earth. The unique piece is preserved in a small commemorative acrylic container that comes individually numbered and with your name on it. A unique collector's item for those who want to hold a real piece of human history in their hands.
Apollo 11: Volume 1
The first volume of the Apollo 11 Flip Book Edition is based on original footage from the NASA archives, shot during the different stages of the mission. It shows the mythical Saturn V launch or the astronauts inside the Command Module, among others. Some sequences are edited in multicam shots to show the action synchronized from different angles. Through our Flipboku Augmented Reality App, you can see a 3D model of the Saturn V rocket as well as an animated recreation of the stage separation.
Apollo 11: Volume 2
Volume 2 features six sequences depicting the moon landing from a more technical and informative point of view, whilst maintaining an artistic approach through the original concept art of NASA artists from 1966, turned into animations. They are some of the most important maneuvers performed by the astronauts, such as the stage separations and docking procedures and the lunar orbit insertion of the CSM-LM module. The docking procedure is also featured as an animated 3D model in the AR App.
The Kapton Mylar foil is from the Apollo 11 Command Module “Columbia”. This particular fragment was recovered from the spacecraft after splashdown on the Pacific Ocean on July 24th 1969.
The unique piece is preserved in a small commemorative acrylic container that comes individually numbered and with your name on it.
Together with the bundle you will receive a certificate of authenticity from the original seller (Goldberg Auctioneers), in addition to our own certificate which goes inside the box.
As a complementary educational tool we have developed this deck of Commemorative Cards with more information about the entire Apollo Program.
It includes 70 neatly designed cards, representing three different categories: 32 astronauts of all the Apollo missions, 18 of the science experiments set up by the astronauts and 20 cards showing the vehicles and hardware that brought them there – and back to Earth.
The flip book edition includes a powerful educational feature: when scanning the slipcases of each flipbook, the Flipboku Augmented Reality App allows you to observe the different spacecraft used during the mission.
In Volume 1, an animated model of the Saturn V rocket demonstrates its 3 different stages and the stage separation process, while in Volume 2 you can discover the Service and Command Module, docked to the Lunar Module, and the transposition and docking procedure. In addition, the double anniversary slipcase features an animated recreation of the Lunar Module in the last seconds of its landing, including the original audio of the mission. Each of these 3D models incorporates extra information, videos and technical specifications about each spacecraft.
Through our Flipboku Augmented Reality App you can observe the different spacecraft used during the mission - FREE download for iPhone and Android.
The most important maneuvers are explained in an original and fun way, turning it into a valuable educational tool and a perfect science toy for kids.
Our exclusive assembly technique allows you to trigger 6 different stories in each flip book (12 in total), depending on the position of your thumb.
The Apollo 11 Flip Book Edition is a fabulous token for space enthusiasts, but also a smart gift and valuable science toy for people of all ages.
