If you've got $2.2 million to spare, treat yourself to a Russian space capsule.

The Soyuz TM-26 is available at www.thespacestore.com.

The Soyuz TM-26 descent capsule was flown to MIR by Russian cosmonauts Anatoly Soloviev and Pavel Vinogradov. They were the cosmonauts who performed emergency repairs to save MIR following the collision with a Progress tanker.

"Their heroic efforts saved the station which is still in orbit three years later," says the site.

This capsule launched on August 5, 1997 and returned the cosmonauts to Earth on February 19, 1998, logging a total of 198 days in space and flying approximately 79 million miles.

Thanks to all our readers who pointed out the site offers gift wrapping for $3.75. ®
