Description


Scarce blue Penguin exercise suit attributed to cosmonaut Yury Onufriyenko. The well-padded full-body suit with zip-up front consists of internal elastic elements interconnected by fabric and tape ties with buckles designed to adjust the suit for growth and amount of load; the decorative exterior of the suit features several zippered pockets, woolen cuffs and collar, a Russian Space Agency patch to left chest, a Russian flag patch to left shoulder, a Space Shuttle/Mir patch, and a Cyrillic/English name patch, “Yu. Onufriyenko,” to upper left chest. These suits are made individually for each cosmonaut and feature a usage period of 45 days. In overall fine condition, with scattered stains to suit legs and expected wear from use. The Pingvin exercise suit, more popularly known as the Penguin suit, is a Russian anti-zero-G suit worn during spaceflight that was designed to mimic the effects of gravity on the body, with the objective of counteracting the loss of bone and muscle in weightlessness.
