- After a scrubbed launch days before, on April 20th, 2023 SpaceX conducted one of the most historic launches in all of mankind. Towering 40 stories tall, the Starship and Super Heavy Booster lifted off the earth surpassing double the thrust of the legendary Saturn V rocket. To date, this is the most powerful man-made launch of all time. Tens of thousands flocked to south Texas to view this highly anticipated and historic flight test being conducted from Starbase on Boca Chica.

With a purging hold on T-40 seconds,the world rejoiced upon continuation of countdown. SpaceX's expectations were scattered and hopes of simply clearing the pad would be considered a win. At liftoff, the 33 Raptor engines of the Super Heavy Booster produced a deafening 17 million pounds of thrust! These great forces and temperatures completely destroyed the launchpad foundation leaving a massive crater. Concrete and fondag were blasted upwards of a mile away from the site. Mass slabs of foundation the size of cars were even flung into the gulf of Mexico as seen in various footage. Nonetheless, the Starship officially had a historic liftoff.

Not only did SN24 and the BN7 booster have lift off, it eventually reached MaxQ (period where the most extreme aerodynamic pressure is exerted on the ship). After Max Q, the Starship pushed through the atmosphere climbing to an altitude of 39km (24 miles). While awaiting stage separation, uncontrollable circumstances forced the team to conduct a flight termination which caused the Starship and Booster to explode roughly 29km (18 miles) over the Gulf of Mexico. Despite all, this flight test was a HUGE historic success and valuable data had been gathered to pave the wave for the future of SpaceX development.

After several weeks, surviving debris (tile fragments) had officially washed ashore during a brief period. Due to the powerful explosion and fall from a very high altitude, most tile pieces were completely destroyed or broken up. While many of the fragments found washed up on south Texas beaches were quite small (1-2"), there were ultra rare cases of larger specimens which had survived. This unique heat tile section is one of those incredible pieces lucky to be found. This highly developed silica composed tile is fairly fragile and very light 'flaking' or dusting is normal and you are suggested to protect and store/display once receiving. These items will be highly protected during shipping and any values over $500 will be insured for cost along with signature required. I will take extreme care is packing the items and will be shipped via US Priority Mail.
