I was metal detecting on Grand Bahamas Island and found a piece of light alloy honeycombed in appearance measuring 2x3x2. I was thinking it could be a piece of heat shield from Apollo.
Can anyone help identify?

It is not from the Apollo CM thermal protection system... although stainless honeycomb was used on Apollo it was of a different design. There are many aerospace applications which utilize aluminum and stainless honeycomb to reduce weight.
