Review of Seal Designs on the Apollo Spacecraft
The Apollo spacecraft required a variety of seal designs to support human spaceflight to the moon and to return the crew safely to Earth. High-temperature seals were required for gaps in the thermal protection system to protect the underlying structures from the high heating environment of super orbital reentry. Reliable pressure seals were also required to prevent the loss of habitable atmosphere during missions to the moon...
