Up for bid is an NASA James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) Integrated Science Instrument Module (ISIM) lapel, stick pin. A very limited number were produces by the Project for distribution several years ago. Pins are no longer authorized to be produced by NASA.

The Integrated Science Instrument Module (ISIM) is one of three major elements that comprise the Webb Observatory flight system. The others are the Optical Telescope Element (OTE) and the Spacecraft Element ( Spacecraft Bus and Sunshield ).

The ISIM is the heart of the James Webb Space Telescope, what engineers call the main payload. This is the unit that will house the four main instruments that will detect light from distant stars and galaxies, and planets orbiting other stars. The structure is like a chassis in a car providing support for the engine and other components.

The pin is red to symbolize the infrared and the 3 rings represent the 3 major elements of the ISIM. Pin is approximately 1" wide and 3/4" high. As a bonus I am including a JWST 4" round plastic sticker with every NASa related purchase.
