There are five hundred “space artifacts” set for auction this January including Buzz Aldrin’s vacuum-sealed beef pot roast dinner set from his space exploration years.

RR Auction, an Amherst-based auction company says the collection features high-quality pieces spanning from the early US rocket program to the space shuttle era.

Signed photos of your favorite astronauts are featured in the list of auction items including a topless photo of Playboy’s Miss August 1967, DeDe Lind, which went to the moon during the Apollo 12 lunar voyage in November 1969. The photo was signed and certified by Yankee Clipper command module pilot Richard Gordon.
