I have in my possession an actual piece of America's first space station, Skylab. This artifact is of the only surviving part, an oxygen tank which reentered the atmosphere and fell to earth. The rest of the space craft was destroyed during reentry. The oxygen tank was recovered in Australia. It is accompanied by two letters of authenticity. One is by astronaut Pete Conrad who also flew on one of the earlier missions.

There is also a photo inside the poster of me standing beside the remnants of the actual oxygen tank that this specimen is taken from. The photo was taken at Marshal Space Flight Center in Alabama. This fine array of space history is over 20 years old now and has been kept in mint condition. If you have a good place to display it, you will have a very rare item indeed!

This historical piece has been appraised for as much as $1500.00. That letter of appraisal will be included. The poster measures 18 inches across (left to right) by 24 inches (up and down). Right now it is in a plastic poster frame, but this is one you will want to have professionally mounted. I'm now asking $1000, but I will take bids over $500. PHOTOS NOW AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. (photos other than those posted here!) Send me your mailing address. Serious inquiries only.
