Coming straight from the Langley Research Center is a super rare 1960s aerodynamic test model for a NASA Super Sonic Transport (SST). This model helped the NASA masterminds plan our intrepid space exploration and now it’s a historical treasure that could be yours.

This aerodynamic model was used in free-flight technique simulations where it would float in a wind tunnel for flight analysis. Crafted from wood and composite materials, it has one rear fin sporting NASA’s iconic logo. The model is in its original condition so it comes with some scratches from testing, letting you feel the historical significance of the piece. Measuring 51 inches long and 24 inches wide, this model would make for a great focal point for the living room of any NASA fanatic. If the price isn’t too astronomical for you, this would be a great addition to your NASA collection.

Purchase: $5,685
