Description

Vladimir Dezhurov's flown suit worn on the International Space Station during Expedition 3, featuring a zip-up front, Russian flag patch on the left shoulder, and bilingual name patch in Cyrillic and English, "V. Dezhurov." Signed inside the neck area in black felt tip, "ISS-3 Flown, V. Dezhurov," with two ISS ink stamps above, done in-flight onboard the station. The gray-and-teal jumpsuit has several additional zippered pockets and pouches on the arms and legs. In fine condition.

As Flight Engineer 1 on ISS Expedition 3, Dezhurov spent over 124 days on the International Space Station. During the mission, he performed four EVAs: with crewmates Mikhail Tyurin and Frank Culbertson, Dezhurov made connections between the Pirs airlock and the station's Zvezda Service Module; installed experiments on the exterior of Pirs; connected cables on the exterior of Pirs for the Kurs automated docking system; completed various checks and inspections; and cleared an obstruction that prevented a Progress resupply ship from firmly docking with the ISS. Originally given as a gift to Alex Panchenko.
