Mar 23, 2010: Lunokhod

Lunokhod-1, which is pictured below, is a rover the Soviet Union landed on the Moon in 1970. Lunokhad-2, which looks basically like -1, landed in 1973, but they lost contact with both of them in the '70s.

Using laser ranging, they've sited Lunokhod 2 and its landing vehicle, Luna 21 with sub-meter accuracy. It's around the Le Monnier crater. Which may be why the contractor, Luvochkin, felt comfortable putting title to Lunokhod 2 and Luna 21 up for auction at Sotheby's in 1993. Together they sold for $68,500, delivery not included.

It would be a hit at a Steampunk Convention, that's for sure.

The buyer was Richard Garriott, aka Lord British, the guy who started Ultima. His dad was an astronaut on Skylab and the Space Shuttle. He also owns a Sputnik.
He also paid $30million for a ride to the Space Station, with the Russians.
If ya got it, spend it.

In the future, kids won't drive around in cars with loud speakers, they'll drive giant four-axled stainless steel woofers around.

Richard Garriott desperately wants to be Richard Branson when he grows up.

Now that he bought the moon garbage, the EPA will be going after him for littering on the moon.

Afraid not, Coign, you forget he's filthy stinkin' rich.

They've got one (or one very much like it) in the Cosmosphere in Hutchinson Kansas.

Which is quite an impressive museum.
