Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $1,210.30 (includes buyer's premium)


Original cosmonaut long duration flight suit. One-piece, full-length suit, sometimes referred to as a ‘penguin suit,’ is complete with the foot stirrups and straps, as well as the torso belt and straps. Suit has three Russian patches sewn to the pockets and arms, and Velcro on the right breast pocket for another patch. In fine condition, with a bit of scattered light soiling to outside of suit. These suits were designed to keep the cosmonaut’s muscles working while in a weightless environment by providing resistance for any movement he or she may make, and resulting in a slight curve to the cosmonaut’s back and shoulders while at rest, resembling the shape of a penguin. This invention gave the Soviets a distinct advantage in the duration of the cosmonauts’ time in space. RR Auction COA.
