Russia’s Olran-D EVA Spacesuit expected to fetch $50,000

If you don’t really like a Spacesuit from Apollo 11, then try a Russian make instead. And you are so in luck, and a 1977-84 Olran-D suit from an aborted Russian Moon mission is being auctioned on the Internet. The Soviet “Olran-D” EVA Spacesuit was to be used as an extra-vehicular activity suit for the N1-L3, better known as “Soviet Moonshot,” a top-secret series of missions with a view to land a man on the Moon, which was canceled. NPP Zvezda was responsible for developing the rare suites that came out with only 27 or training suits and seven flight variants.

The suite features a regenerative Life Support System and a 20m electric umbilical, which not just a safety joint but also connected to the suit’s power supply, radio communication, and telemetry. The suit is currently estimated between $40,000 and $50,000, with an opening bid of $30,000.
