Cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko Purportedly Flown Blue Wool Knit Cap

0.00

A Lined Wool Knit cap with button flaps part of survival wardrobe made for cosmonaut and astronaut to use after the landing.

 When cosmonauts and astronauts return from a long-duration space mission on board the International Space Station, they are always coming home on a Soyuz capsule, landing in northern Kazakhstan. The Kazakh Steppe is known for its bitter winters. When a Soyuz lands, it usually takes at least an hour for the rescue team to arrive. But a blizzard or other unforeseen problems could leave the crew stranded for longer periods of time. So, cosmonauts and astronauts undergo special survival training, just in case.

They have a special emergency kit in the Soyuz which includes weapons, lights, water (6 liters for three people), dried food, first aid kit, tools and equipment that may be useful in extreme conditions, and clothing such as a heat suit, woolen cap, headset, gloves, socks and fur socks.

Some  holes, otherwise the cap is in the mint condition.
