Yesterday, investment firm chairman Evgeny Yurchenko paid $2,882,500 for the Vostok 3KA-2 space capsule that orbited the Earth with a human dummy and a space mutt in ’61. Until now, it was the only capsule of its kind outside of Russia, privately owned by an anon American. Ahem-ahem. Evgeny wants everyone to know that he’s “thrilled” to “bring it back” and plop it in a museum somewhere, next to said space mutts’ taxidermy display. The visiting Russian moneybags are taking their toys and going home, one cracked rusty ball of national pride at a time.
