Skylab - Titanium Oxygen Tank For Sale

1 post in this topic

Anyone want to own a piece of the first space station NASA even launched? This 25 kilo chunk of space debris crashed down in Western Australia back in 1979 (with the rest of the space station).

You can clearly see where this piece of debris was located on Skylab by clicking here

My friend has owned this for many years and now wants to sell it. He has built it into a coffee table with a removable glass lid. 

You can also see in the newspaper article from 1979 that exact same piece of debris. 

The titanium is twisted, ripped and torn. A clear indication of the rigors of reentry and hitting the ground, which I personally think adds character to the piece.

And yes, NASA are aware of this piece and don't want it (hence the newspaper article from 1979).
