Description


Used ‘soft landing’ Soviet Soyuz retro rocket. Rocket measures approximately 8 x 7 with stenciled part numbers along bottom. About seven miles above the Earth, the Soyuz module would deploy its twin drogue parachutes, then its single main parachute would open. At a height of approximately seven feet above the earth’s surface, the heat sheild would be released, exposing four of these retrorockets, which would fire just prior to impact, ensuring a soft landing for the module and crew. Rocket is mounted to a vertical display stand with a descriptive plaque affixed to the base. In fine used condition. While used on all of the Soyuz descent capsules, these retrorocket engines are almost never available to collectors. Since American space flights land in water, or in the case of the Space Shuttle, use a different landing concept, similar engines are non-existent and can only come from Russian flights. RRAuction COA.
