Two 'REAL' Used Spacesuits for Sale.

...Guess what? 
On May 5th, you can purchase a slightly used spacesuit as well as many other space mission items at a New York Space Sale auction. These two suits include a Sokol K spacesuit worn by cosmonaut Alexei Leonov during a historic 1975 mission and the Sokol KV-2 spacesuit  worn by Gennadi Strekalov during a 1990 mission at the Mir space station. 
The Sokol KV-2 suit is expected to fetch anywhere between $60,000 - $80,000 and the Sokol K between $100,000 - $150,000.... I guess it's time to start digging in the sofa cushions, 'cuz these would make some pretty sweet Halloween costumes...!
