SpaceX CRS-7 Dragon Solar Cell Array Paperweight (2017)
This paperweight given to SpaceX employees features an actual piece of the SpaceX Dragon Solar Cell array structure from their CRS-7 mission, embedded in Lucite.
Note card included with paperweights reads:
2017 has proved to be a pivotal year for SpaceX. As we celebrate our first re-flight and more to come, it’s important to remember the lessons learned from past hardships.
While the CRS-7 and Amos-6 mishaps are behind us, we continue to feel their impact. As we all know, a million things can go right but it only takes one misstep to result in a mission failure.
This portion of Dragon’s solar array structure from the failed CRS-7 mission serves as a reminder that launching safely and reliably is everyone’s duty. Always triple check your work, check the work of others, and together we will continue to make history.
