If you’re a history completist, or some sort of weirdo, eBay has just the thing for ya:



Aw, hamburgers…

    C’mon, Scott. Where’s your sense of adventure?

      Nowhere near anything that chair might try to access.

    Ok, that is a weird artifact, but Scott, you would have loved to have seen the Charles Bell collection it came from. It was a literally junk yard of space hardware. I saw it in person on several occasions, the last in about 1994 when I was about 12. It was a fenced in junk yard with guard dogs and a treasure trove. I’m talking a full size LEM mockup, a Atlas booster mockup with plywood stringers so it didn’t need to be pressurized, and a whole lot of other stuff that was being covered by Florida undergrowth. An internet search will turn up some info but as I recall he hoarded stuff from NASA auctions and then when he died they just liquidated and the collector community had no notice. I so wish I had a picture. Maybe I’ll find one in my dad’s collection some day. It was a one of a kind thing that will never be repeated again.

      I am so jealous.

      Never an internet billionaire when you want one.

    Ok gentlemen, we’re about to find out who really wants to be an astronaut. This is the point where I decided my test pilot career was just fine after all.

    If you want to crowdfund this sucker I’m sure you’ve enough readers to help you boldly go.
