This is really nifty — if you have the bucks:
NASA private collectors are auctioning off a bunch of NASA hardware and other items from the Apollo program!
For example, shown here is the headset Charlie Duke (future Apollo 16 moonwalker) used as CAPCOM to talk to the Apollo 11 astronauts, and this was the very headset he used to listen to the first words spoken from another world! That’s seriously cool. Of course, the minimum bid is $5000, and I imagine it’ll go for more. But that would be fun to have. I’d play NASA all the time!
So, if you’re loaded with cash,
send it to me go take a look at the lot. Bidding starts on January 13th, and maybe you’ll get a chance to own some real space history.
