Command Module Rotational Hand Controller, Apollo 12
u Owner David Meerman Scott loves this joystick-like contraption for its function: “It was actually used to control the spacecraft!” Scott is astounded at the costs of collecting: specifically, how small they are, despite the recent inflation. “You can acquire objects used on these missions for a fraction of the cost of a Babe Ruth baseball bat. To me, it’s the bargain of the century.”
