Objects from NASA’s spatial missions to be auctioned


The auction will happen in New York City. The buyers can bid for even a Mercury-era spacesuit which was never used in space. The price it is expected to be sold at is $8,000 to $12,000. 27 other spacesuits from the Soviet era, specifically designed to protect the wearer during the ejection will be sold from $15,000 to $20,000. A replica of the flag that Aldrin took to the moon, a shoulder strap embedded with lunar dust used by Charles Conrad and Alan Bean of Apollo 12 during lunar surface explorations, a sigh ring used by James Irwin of Apollo 15 to create a polarizing effect on pictures will be sold at the same auction.
This is not however the first time when objects used in spatial missions are offered in auctions.  A Hasselblad camera claimed to have been used by U.S. astronauts of the Apollo 15 mission on the moon sold at an auction in Vienna for nearly $1 million, being  offered by a private collector.
