Still more Weird Crap in Mike’s place

Since we’re in the High Holy week for space nerds everywhere as this being the 45th anniversary of Apollo 11, my Weird Crap is a pair of handrails from a lunar module. They don’t look like much, but they’re FREAKING HAND RAILS FROM THE FREAK’N LUNAR MODULE! I wasn’t sure on how to display them but then did this as the “porch” to the inner sanctum, the second floor in other words.

    • From various auctions held each year. The stuff ain’t cheap, at least as compared to 20 years ago. But at the auction these were at, one could also get a Mercury spacesuit prototype and a LM leg.
