Apollo 6 Gallery


Overall view of simulated Block II umbilical.

The location of the experimental ablator panels is clearly visible. Apollo 6 flew samples of two different ablative materials in the umbilical, one on either side. The center section, which was covered by no ablative sample and thus exposed to the heat of reentry, is a different color.
