Creator of
unveils Russian Spacesuit

    Boca Raton resident and Science Museum member Rick Newman has been collecting science and space artifacts for years. This past July, he obtained a real Russian SOKOL spacesuit and on Saturday, September 20th it will be unveiled at the South Florida Science Museum. 

    "This is one of only three authentic SOKOL spacesuits around in the country," says Newman. 

    Rick Newman's collection includes authentic (space) gloves, suits, instruments and equipment that have actually been used in space. Some have even been autographed by the astronauts (and cosmonauts) who used them.

    Another recent acquisition includes a MIR window that Newman plans on including in the display at the Museum. These items will join the collection currently on loan from Newman's company, has provided displays and set up 15 science centers in schools and Boy Scout Camps in 12 different states. His focus is on underserved communities that would not be able to afford to purchase or rent the displays on their own.

    Don't forget to save the date: Saturday, September 20th for your chance to witness the unveiling of the SOKOL suit, and to discover more about the space industry, with our international partners.
