Moon Boot Exhibit
When the Apollo 11 astronauts stepped onto the surface of the moon in 1969, their feet were protected from the 250 degree temperatures and vacuum of space by boots with silicone rubber soles manufactured by
a Momentive Performance Materials legacy company.
Those materials were designed and manufactured right here in Waterford, New York. See an actual moon boot from the 1969 space program that has been donated to SUNY Poly CMOST by Momentive Performance Materials.
