Description

Brilliant life-sized model of the historic Sputnik satellite

Attractive full-scale lightweight replica of the Sputnik satellite, measuring 22 inches in diameter, with four removable antennae, each able to telescope to approximately 10 feet in length to accommodate for display purposes. In fine condition. A similar, if less detailed, example—which was made by the same craftsman of the here-offered piece—can be seen hanging at the Neil Armstrong Museum. As a detailed model of the first artificial earth satellite, this life-sized example exists as a true must-have for serious space aficionados.
