Yuri Malenchenko's flown suit worn on the International Space Station during Expedition 7, featuring a zip-up front, Russian flag patch on the left shoulder, and bilingual name patch in Cyrillic and English, "Yu. Malenchenko." Signed inside the neck area in black felt tip, "Flown ISS-7, Y. Malenchenko." The blue-and-gray jumpsuit has several additional zippered pockets and pouches on the arms and legs. In fine condition.
A veteran cosmonaut, Malenchenko ranks second for career time in space due to his time spent on both Mir and the International Space Station. As the commander of Expedition 7, he logged 182 days on the ISS and conducted fifteen scientific experiments with Flight Engineer Ed Lu. During the course of the mission, Malenchenko also became the first person to get married in space—a virtual ceremony was held on August 10, 2003, with his bride located 240 miles below in Texas. A desirable flown uniform of a well-traveled cosmonaut. Originally given as a gift to Alex Panchenko.
