Real relics of the ‘race to the moon’
Many items at Auctionata have travelled far and wide, although many of the items of Soviet spaceflight memorabilia have gone a step further. It will be possible to bring home such a piece of spaceflight history during our auction. Amongst the lots you will find space-tried space suits, signed collector’s items and manuscripts from the Soviet space program. All of these unique items are of great scientific and sentimental value.
One auction highlight is a Soviet dog spacesuit from 1961. Such a spacesuit was also worn by the unforgettable dog Laika, who was the first living creature to orbit the Earth but sadly did not return alive. Another unique item comes in the shape of a fragment of the Wostok 1, the spaceship which brought Juri Gagarin into space, the very first human being to do so. Other items include a Forel hydrosuit for water landings, along with gloves, a helmet and shoes originating from an Orlan cosmonaut spacesuit. Furthermore, the auction will feature a cognac bottle, which was signed by Juri Gargarin, a tube of coffee with milk, which was signed by Pavel Popovich after it accompanied him into space and a personally inscribed photo album belonging to the Russian astrophysicist Yuri Naumovich Lipsky.
